i have created one windows application and one of my page i created one report genetaing function using crystal report. It is working fine in my system while am running the code.
But after installing the published application in my system it is not working.Error with report
below is the cosde which am using to set crystal report source

Dim Report As New ReportDocument
Report.Load(path) 'path am getting using application.executepath
reportviewer.ReportSource = Report

but after installing the application i couldnt find the report file (.rpt) in application installed folder(c\programfiles\application).
Why this report is not coming here?
Because of this am getting error that 'failed to load report' (Problem with Report.Load(path) because here report.rpt is not available in application folder )
What is the soltion here?

Solution 1

1. you should pack report file (.rpt file) with setup
2. set path varible (using reflection) not using application.executepath
Happy Coding!

visit link

Note ignore merge module
but add prerequiites

and use Add file option by right click on setup project then Add all .rpt files you created

then build

in setup project debug folder you will see setup file and folders which was selected for prerequisite
