Please Help!!

      I created setup program using the Setup Wizard (I am using VB4).
      At the end of the install, during the "updating your system" phase,
      I receive an error registering the DLL and OCX files related to
      Crystal Reports.

      It works fine if I install on a system with Visual Basic already
installed,
      but not on a user's system (no VB installed).

      What should I do???

I put a new question (with more details) on 8/5.  It is titled
"Why am I  having this SETUP problem?"

See that question for more details.

I assume that you are not using the Crystal that shipped with VB, but an upgrade. Edit the SWDepend.ini file and make sure that the following entries are under the {CRYSTL16.OCX] heading:

UsesN=CRPE.DLL
UsesN=CRXLATE.DLL
UsesN=UXDDISK.DLL
UsesN=UXFDIF.DLL
UsesN=UXFREC.DLL
UsesN=UXFSEPV.DLL
UsesN=UXFTEXT.DLL
UsesN=PDBDAO.DLL
UsesN=PDCTDAO.DLL
UsesN=PDIRDAO.DLL
UsesN=PDSODBC.DLL
UsesN=PDBBND.DLL
UsesN=MFCOLEUI.DLL

where N is the next following number. From my experience only the last one is missing, but the ocx needs that file to register the file. Run the setup wizard again and make sure that all the above files are included.

Before running the setup program on the client machine, delete the Crystal OCX from the windows\system directory.

Hope this helps
