craxdrt9.dll Windows 2K & XP conflicts?

Hi,

I have a VB6 application that can view & print some CR9 reports (aside from doing other stuff). I've packaged the application using InnoSetup and that when deployed on a Windows 2K machine, everything works just fine. Problem is when I deploy to an XP machine (tried it on 3 different XP machines with same result) and this causes my deployment package to hang.

I've traced which dll file that's causing it to hang. It's craxdrt9.dll. I believe it hangs when the installation is trying to register this dll. I tried registering it manuallly on an XP machine and it registers just fine.

Question: Is there an issue with regards to this dll when being distributed on an XP machine? has anybody heard of a fix or have heard this same problem arising from someone else?

Here is the InnoSetup script line that deals with craxdrt9.dll:
Source: c:\program files\crystal decisions\report designer component\craxdrt9.dll; DestDir: {cf}\crystal decisions\2.0\bin; Flags:  regserver restartreplace sharedfile

Thanks is advance!

You shouls manually register the appropriate dlls as the article suggests

To manually register DLL Files:

1. On the 'Start' menu, click 'Start' > 'Run'. The 'Run' dialog box appears.

2. In the 'Open:' text box, enter "regsvr32.exe 'full_path_to_file.dll'" and click 'OK'.
