Missing or out of date export.dll Error Message

I have created and distributed a Crystal Report using the Crystal Report Distribution Expert.

After installing the report, they can print the report to a window, but receive the following error message when attempting to export:

print enging error
error in file c: program files\seagate software\distributed reports\nml2tnt.rpt
missing or out of date export.dll

The report was created using version 8.5, client is using Windows XP OS.

I need to rectify this.  I need to know:

1.  Can I update a .dll file on there workstation?  
If so, which one and where should it be located?

2.  Is there a better way to distribute a crystal report?  My clients would like the ability to export to a .pdf file which isn't supported using the Report Distribution Expert.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

The following is for CR7 but may help since the error message is the same.

Sorry for the delay...I had to test it on my clients pc.

Turns out they didn't have the export files.

Thanks again!
