CR8.5 on citrix

I have installed cr8.5 on citrix
All is working fine except for this
in the data explorer under More Data Sources, I dont have an option for MS SQL as i do on any regular desktop, It is weird because I have it installed on another farm and it is in that data explorer.

Do you have the SQL Server Client tools installed the Citrix server?

On the install for SQL Server, one of the options is to install just the Client Utilities.  I believe you need to install this in order for MS SQL to be available under More Data Sources.

Yes that is correct.  As a warning though, if you choose to use the MS SQL connection you will need to have client licenses for MS SQL for all users who wish to display the report.  An alternative is to use the OLE connection to MS SQL and distribute the Crystal OLE driver.

I installed the client tools.
it didnt help
I can use an OLE connection and get to the desired database without any problems except this
When the user chooses an a pre-existing report, created on her local machine and she tries to refresh the data we get this error
the library pdssql.dll cannot  be found: please check your installation
i cant find this file on my other citrix server which is running cr8.5 without any issues
thanks in advance guys
