Hi,
i created a app in vb and deployed it on another machine and i get the following error

      "Physical Database not found"

I read that i could copy the dll's from the WINDOWS\Crystal folder and register them on the other machine to ensure the dll it needs are present. I did this and am still getting the problem.

Any ideas?

did you copy the database needed over too?  If you try and access a non existent DB its probably going to return that error.

Hello,

At the site http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2009409.asp you can find:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The main cause for this error is missing or out-of-date database DLLs on the client computer.

To find which database DLLs are missing or out-of-date use the following steps:

1) In Crystal Reports go to the 'Database' menu and select 'Set Location'. In the 'Set Location' dialog box, note the type of database listed beside 'Server Type'.

2) Open the Runtime Help File (Runtime.hlp) and under the 'Index' tab search for 'Database Access'. From the list of database connection methods that appear, select your server type and then select the appropriate database.

A list of database runtime files appears. Using this list, ensure that you distribute the appropriate database runtime files to the client computer.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. When you design a crystal report via Ctrystal Report Designer you have to provide the Report with the structure of a reference database.
2. The reference database is needed for creating the report - not to get data from.
3. If you try to access a database for displaying a report you could get the above error when the reference database is not found.
4. To re-assign the reference database please read the description at http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2009409.asp
