CRPE32.DLL PROBLEM

I have tried installing Seagate Crystal Reports 8.0 on my computer and it doesn't install the CRPE32.DLL component in the C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 folder...

My program installer could not proceed with the installation because it is looking for this component...

How do I install it to the C:/WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 folder?? I tried just copying it from the extracted Crystal Reports folder but it still doesn't work...

If you copy a dll in manually you usually have to register it manually also.  After copying it in, try this from the Start -> Run box:  regsvr32 "C:\windows\system32\crpe32.dll"  <- substitute your own path to the file.

Have you had other Crystal products installed on this machine before?

What version of Windows?

When you say "My program installer"  are you not installing using the setup from the CD?

Frodoman,
Ok, we'll try that too



mlmcc,

No there are no other crystal products inalled before.
The version is Windows XP Professional edition…but it should also be able to run on other versions such as Win 2000

>>>it doesn't install the CRPE32.DLL component

Are you installing from a crystal CD?  What exactly is the error message that you're seeing?

message is:

"c:\windows\system32\crpe32.dll was loaded but the dll register srver entry point was not found. this file cannot be registered"


not directly from a CD .....it's a zip file that is needed to be extracted. it will create a folder on my drive c: to uncompress the installer. after uncompressing it,then I can click the setup to install it

CR 8 is not supported on XP.  I know people are running CR8 and CR7 on XP but Crystal hasn't tested that nor will they and they don't recommend it.  Your problem may be that the zip file doesn't include all the files required for an XP install.

Is the user doing the "install" logged in with ADMIN privileges?

I also found this link describing a similar problem because other software had a .dll with the same name: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2007035.asp

It sounds like either the dll itself is corrupted or it's missing a dependent file.  mlmcc could be right about WinXP being the problem also.
