Reports don't work

I wrote an app that uses the Crystal Report Designer Component. I connect using a data environment. The app works great. The problem, when I did a test deployment of the app, the app got a 713 error when trying to open the report. I looked up the error, and it is a known bug. The work around was to add the data environment to the references. However, this does not work. I have tried using the old Crystal Reports ActiveX control. However, these reports will not open after the app has been setup on a user's system. They work great on mine, but the reporting will not work after installed. Is there a way to make this work, or are there other report generators that will work with VB?

did you package your app with PDW?  if so, it tends to miss a lot of the dependencies for crystal.

can you post the line where you get that error?

Application defined error 713, and yes I use the PDW. However, Technet had a work around. But the work around does not work for me. Using VB 6, Crystal 8.5, Windows XP
