i developed a Crystal Reports v9 report on a machine that has visual studio. The data from  is an XML file. It uses the database type is ADO.net.

i goto another PC, that does not have Visual Studio installed. This machine has the .NET developers framework. It also has the .net OBDC drivers pack downloaded.

However, I try to run this report and get, "Failed to load database information. Details: The database DLL 'crdb_adoplus.dll' could not be loaded".

What does this mean?

Some other notes, on the second machine i do have under ODBC datasource driver: CR ODBC XML Driver 4.10. However, i have no way of using this in Crystal. What gives?

crdb_adoplus.dll is a dll from Crystal that needs to be installed on the client machine.

This might help determine all the dlls requird.
