    Dim crxApplication As New CRAXDRT.Application
    Dim crxReport As New CRAXDRT.Report

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim strConnect As String
    Set crxReport = crxApplication.OpenReport("c:\abc.rpt")
    Me.CRViewer1.ReportSource = crxReport
    Me.CRViewer1.ViewReport

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.

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
Today companies are subjected to more-and-more data, and it won't stop any time soon.  But there are obvious opportunities for reducing data, particularly data duplicated among companies.
The viewer will learn how to create multiple layers to apply various filters and how to delete areas from each layer’s filter.
The viewer will learn how to successfully download and install the SARDU utility on Windows 7, without downloading adware.
