This is the exact same question as:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?qid=20116117
and the "answer" can be found at:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q297/2/18.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0&qry=80010108&rnk=1&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=MSALL
and
http://support.crystaldecisions.net/library/kbase/articles/c2009024.asp

The problem I have (I feel kind of like a moron about this) is that I can not locate the file Crystl32.dep.

What am I missing?

That's the thing... it is not there!  I have manually checked these areas and done searches, but nothing has come up.

I am running Windows 2000 Server by the way... perhaps for some wierd reason it does not install under 2000???

Anyone out there with the exact format of the 8.5 file?  That is, I would be willing at this point to create the dep file manually, but am not sure if the 8 format will do.

Geez, don't I feel dumb.  Upon copying it I get a message asking me if I want to replace it.  Apparently it is a hidden file!  Man, I thought I checked that!  Anyway bobbit31, easy big points for you!!!

I don't need the points... besides, I know how it is with points and getting screwed out of them sometimes here at E-E (either the person asking the question chooses the wrong person or they just give you a B)... so consider this a gift for all of those times you should have got more!
