Crystal Reports Issue

Hello!

I'm experimenting with setting up a web site for my company to be able to run reports from an intranet site.  To do this, I downloaded the examples from Seagate to get a feel for them.  I have a web server that supports ASP.  I have Crystal Reports 8.5 on my local machine (where I'm doing the coding).  I don't have IIS installed - I'm just trying to run it on the web server where it will be eventually set up.  When trying to run the first example(BeginHere), I'm getting this error message:

Server.CreateObject Failed
AlwaysRequiredSteps.asp, line 15
Invalid ProgID

Can anyone tell me what this means?  I'm assuming the error is in the line:

Set session("oApp") = Server.CreateObject("CreateRuntime.Application")

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, that should be:

Server.CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application")

You're trying to run this example on your web server where you don't have Crystal installed?  You're going to have to install at least the web components on your server before this will work.

Yes that would pose a problem.  I guess the best way to get the examples is to load the IIS on my local machine with Crystal installed.
