I am working with an application that another developer created.  I had to make some changes to the application.  I need to create a new package now that I have added the changes.  The package contains some crystal reports that are used.  After I created the package I noticed that there was only 23 files in the support directory compared to 75 in the original package.  It looks like many of the crystal files are missing in the package.  What do I need to do to add all the dependency files for crystal in the package.  The users run the crystal reports off Citrex I beleive.  Thanks all.

52 files is too many for Crystal to be the only culprit unless the report files themselves were being distributed.  

Look at for the required files
