crpe32.dep file for PDW

Hi all,

Have a bit of a weird one here!!

sepcs
-----
OS: Windows2k (SP2)
Crystal Reports 8.5
VB6(SP4)
SQL Server 2000
ADO connection

I have gone through many problems in PDW, i.e. circular reference with the crpe32.dll file, etc.. but I am now hit another issue and cannot find any reference to it either on the MSDN or CrystalDecisions :(

For some reason the CR database dll's are not being included.. These files reside in the "C:\WINNT\Crystal" directory and these files should be picked up and installed into the setup from the file "crpe32.dep", however, for some reason this .dep file is not being used, its just being ignored!!

I have done as much as I can, i.e. uninstall - reinstall, checked the obvious, i.e. the .dep file resides in the right place with the crpe32.dll, etc..

I know I could just Add this files manually in the PDW, but I want to get to the bottom of why these are not being included in the setup!! Hence the amount of points.

If anyone has experienced this and found the solution let us know!!

Many thanks.

Christian

Christian,

I do not know for sure if this will help but it is worth a try.

Goto the following website (May take a minute to load)

http://www.kms-software.com/support/Downloads/Crystal%20Error%20Messages.pdf

Go down to the:

Error: "20998" Section

This deals with problems involving the Dependancy file.  

Hope this helps you.

Cheers,

Ed.

Christian,

I have posted what Is in this pdf below.

Ed.


20998
Error: "20998"

This error message occurs on the client computer because the charting dependency file, pg32conv.dll, was not distributed with the application.

To resolve this error message, include pg32conv.dll with your application by following these steps:

1. On the development computer, open crpe32.dep using Notepad.

2. Under the "Additional Runtime DLLs section" after 'Uses48' add the following:
     Uses49=\program files\seagate software\shared\pg32conv.dll

3. Under the "Additional CRPE32 Runtime section" after the [SSCSDK80.DLL] reference, add the following:
     [pg32conv.DLL]
     Dest=$(WinSysPath)
     Uses1=

4. Save crpe32.dep and package your application. The application will now run successfully on the client computer.
