Runtime error when installing CR9.0 viewing VB application with all recommended merge modules

I have an application written in Visual Basic 6.0 that views reports using the Crystral Reports Viewer 9.0. The installer I am using is Wise for Windows Installer 4.0. I am using Crystal Reports 9.0 Developer edition.

I have downloaded the file cr9rdcmergemodules.zip which contains the merge modules that are required required for deploying Crystal Reports 9 applications using the Report Designer Component, and have included them in the merge modules section of the Wise for Windows installer. I have included the module licenses.msm, and entered the License Key of my Developers Edition Crystal Reports 9.0 (and yes, I have correctly entered the key).

When I install the application onto my test machine, with freshly installed Windows 2000 pro SP4, it starts fine, but when I try to run a report I get a "Run-time error '429': ActiveX component can't create object".

I don't understand why I am getting this error as I have included all the files as recommended in the readme text of cr9rdcmergemodules.zip. Can anyone help me?

There is nothing specifically for CR9 in the Crystal knowledge base.  This help for CR6 and above may be the ticket

I've found the solution: namely that I hadn't enabled the references "Crystal Reports Activex Designer and design run time library" and "Crystal Reports Activex Designer Runtime Library" for the Crystal Report Viewer Control 9 in Visual Basic 6.0.

After i'd done that everything worked.

Thank mlmcc for that suggestion.
