Error 532: Cannot find DataBase DLL

Hello there.
I have written a Delphi application that uses an Access XP DataBase.
I am using Crystal Reports 8.5 (with Crystal VCL 8.x.0.7) to create a report and it works fine on my computer (Win2k Professional).
When I put it on another PC (Win2k Professional) and tried to preview the report I got an error with the following message:

Error 532: Cannot find DataBase DLL. Execute <PEStartPrintJob>

Could you help me please?

you have also to deploy some files from crystal-reports

see your crystal-reports documentation about deployment
(i have no crystal-reports on hand yet)

I will ask to delete this question.
I didn't find the a solution to this problem. However, I have tried the same application on other PCs that dont have Crystal Reports installed and it worked perfectly. It seems that the PC itself has a conflict or something like that.

I have found the missing file. It was p2smon.dll
I thought that is deployed on that PC but it wasn't.

I'm getting the same Crystal Reports Error 532 returned from a call to PEPrintReport which is a routine in crpe32.dll.  The call to PEOpenEngine (in same dll) apparently worked.  I found one reference that indicated "532" was a corrupt dll (crpe32.dll i presume).

I have reloaded crpe32.dll and all other dll's needed (including p2smon.dll) and still no luck.  The computer is running W98 and has been working for a year.  Can't pin down what changed.  Scandisk found no problems.  Other W98 computers and W2K computers are working fine.

I tryed the dsx32.exe trick, but didn't find anything missing on the problem computer.

I'm going to try reloading W98 and perhaps all of the CR dll's again?
