We are just building an installation CD using either PDW or MS Installer (Win 2K)

I don't know of a Merge Module for CR8 there is one for CR9

Here is  a list of the required files for CR8

Thanks for the help
I followed the instructions on the page and included and registered the files which were registrable,but i am getting the following error
"Physical Database not found"
R U Using CR 8 ?
I got all these files into the application folder.
All works fine on a machine on which CR8 is installed but on a machine on which it is not the above error pops up :-(

I am using a Simple Access 2002 Database
with a DSN in CR8

implode.dll
SSCSDK80.dll
PG32CONV.dll
Crpaig80.dll
Crxlat32.dll
Craxdrt.dll
Crviewer.dllP2smon.dll
Craxdrt.dll
URLMON.DLL
P2smon.dll

We aren't using a dsn but is the DSN installed on the machine?  Is it a system dsn or a machine dsn?

I Create DSN Using The SqlConfigDSN API
and it goes to User DSN

Can we use some other method as well for the above task ?
Just Design Report in the Designer
and view it using CR Viewer ?

The way I create a new report is

Open CRYSTAL
Select NEW REPORT
The wizard brings up the DATA SELECTION wizard which allows me to define the data source
Then I create the report.  I don't use any of the wizards for that since their output generally isn't at all like what I want.
