The P&D wizard understands what is required for VB.  Crystal has its own set of required files which you need to manually add or try using these merge modules

CR9 required files (CR10 are similar)

Thank you, is realy necesary to download the merge modules, or is any fast trak to do so?
Im working with Visual basic 6.0 I'm using the package and deployment wizard, I'm have reports from Cristal reports 10  and i'm only going to instal the aplication in PC with Windows XP personal edition,
Is that any way to prepare the package only adding the required .DLL if you know what of them I need i realy apreciate?

mlmcc is right in that you need to distribute crystal's .dll's and the .dll's of anything else your product is referencing, but, if you can - I would move to INNO setup (its free).  the Package and Deployment wizard is very buggy especially on XP machines.

Just remember to download the 3rd party tools (they make it easier to learn how to create a setup script) and look in the FAQ on how to create a setup for VB6.

You can try.  Look at the second link I provided.  It will give you an idea on which dlls are required.  You can add them individually to P&D
