VB packaging problem and missing the pdsora7.dll file.

I am using Visual Basic 6.0 to open a Crystal Report 8.5, in which the report then connects to an Oracle server located somewhere faraway. Everything works fine until I try to package the VB application. The package does not get created and no error was displayed. But if I deselect all CR-related modules, the packaging wizard works fine. What's the problem?

So I decided to gather all the DLLs and OCXs myself. When I ran it on another machine, it reports to me that it "cannot log on to the server". I suspected that it might be with the pdsora7.dll file that I can't seem to find it anywhere. What to do?

You actually should look for p2sora7.dll.  The pd* and p2* dlls are basically the same.  pd dlls are for 16-bit applications.  p2 dlls are for 32-bit applications.

Do you have the Developer edition of CR8.5?  The developer edition includes the distribution rights.

I got the following information from "about crystal report . . ." :

       CR Developer; Product Type: Full
       Product 8.5.0.217

I believe it's a full version. Tomorrow I will go and try my reports on my friend's computer. But his is running CR 8.0. Will it be okay? My reports do not contain any fancy stuff.

Neither pdsora7.dll nor p2sora7.dll exist on my computer.

You may need to do an update installation to install the Oracle drivers.
