Run-Time error '429' ActiveX component can't create object when launching a crystal report from VB

I get the following error when trying to launch any Crystal Report from a VB6 Application.  

Run-Time error '429' ActiveX component can't create object

It's only happening on one system.  It works fine on others so I'm pretty sure there is a driver or something not registered properly.  I've installed the latest service pack for windows 2000 (sp4), MDAC 2.8, Crystal Reports (sp3).  I've been to Crystal Solutions site and searched their knowledge base and re-registered cdo32.dll and craxdrt.dll.  Nothing seems to be working.  Any ideas?  My last option is going to be to install Visual Studio on the system and debug the program, but I'm hoping someone has some ideas as to what may be causing the problem.

Thanks in advance.

Also when the dlls for crystal reprots are not registered properly, you get that error. Try to put the necessary components

Does the logged in user have Administrative rights to the machine in question?  If not, that might prevent the Active X Viewer from being created.

Yeah, it doesn't matter whether they are an administrator or not. The same error occurs when you try to launch a crystal report.

I found the solution.  The Report Designer Component  of Crystal Reports was not including some of the dlls that were needed.

Here's the article that I used:

CRDesignerCtrl.dll and Craxddrt.dll were not registered.  Althought they are included in SP3 for crystal, the service pack did not install and register them.  I pulled the files out of the service pack and put them in the C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\Report Designer Component directory and then registered them.  Problem solved.

Thanks for the comments.
