Hi Experts,

Having problem exporting Crystal Report from VB6 application running on client machine.  Export fizzles out after the 'Export Options' window.  The anticipated 'Choose Export File' window never shows up.  Nothing happens.

I must be missing a dll or have not registered a dll properly since this problem only occurs on a few client machines.  If anyone knows which dll I would appreciate the information.

FYI:  Used Crystal 8.5, client machines have various OS

TIA

anv -> Disappointed to say that the crxf_*.dll's are on the client machine.  

Michael -> Checked out that article and it referenced two dependency dll's, ExportModeller.dll and Crtslv.dll.  And they too are on the client machine.  

Any other suggestions, please???

Wait a minute...turns out my dll's were way outdated!!!  A Crystal Hot Fix had newer files!  Now it works, I'm going to award both 50 pts.
