ActiveX component can't create object

I'm trying to open a crystalreport from the sql server but when I try doing that using the crystal report object I get this error message "ActiveX component can't create object"
Here's my code:

Private m_objRepApp As CRAXDRT.Application
Private m_objRep As CRAXDRT.Report

Set m_objRepApp = CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application")
Set m_objRep = m_objRepApp.OpenReport(m_strReportPath)
m_objRep.EnableParameterPrompting = False

It gives me this message when this statement is executed
Set m_objRepApp = CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application")

Can anyone help me with this problem. Thanks

If it is a client machine you are missing some dlls.
