Following is the complete error message:

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

    < jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.
Your merge modules are right, but make sure your project includes a reference to CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms and that it didn't mistakenly get excluded from the assembly project.

You might also want to consider updating the client to version 1.1 of the .net framework ( I don't really think that's the problem, but I've only used crystal with 1.1 so maybe there's something I don't know about it).

the referce is also correct as follows:
Imports CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms

CompTIA Cloud+

The CompTIA Cloud+ Basic training course will teach you about cloud concepts and models, data storage, networking, and network infrastructure.

Do you also have:

Imports CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared
Here's another possibility.  If you upgraded from VS2002 to VS2003, there is a configuration bug.  See the solution at crystal support:

This might be helpful:

How do you deploy an application that uses Crystal Reports and VS .NET?
here's your problem right here:

"I have an crystalreport object in my project."

i tried to use the crappy crystal reports objects included in visual studio, but they don't work very well.

try contacting the crystal decisions tech support. that's what i had to do.

3. Instead of using the merge modules listed in 'crnet_deployment.pdf', replace those merge modules with the following files:

· Crystal_Database_Access2003.msm
· Crystal_Database_Access2003_enu.msm
· Crystal_Managed2003.msm
· Crystal_regwiz2003.msm
· VC_User_CRT71_RTL_X86_---.msm (used for reports
based on ADO.NET)
· VC_User_STL71_RTL_X86_---.msm (used for reports
based on ADO.NET)

Very good answer from msdixon. His answer is worthy of 1000 points atleast (!!!!!!!)
Unfortunately, I dont have that much credits.
sorry msdixon.
i thought you would agree... unfortunately, you probably can't make the decision to remove crystal reports from your application.
peterdevadossAuthor Commented:
There might be a problem in registering some components.  I changed my setup type from loose compressed files to setup files.  Then I run the setup in the client pc. its ok. there is no prob in running the crystal report from my application.

But its still wired to me.. the crystal report thing.
