Runtime Error '429': Active X Component cannot create object. Please help!

Dear all,

          I have developed an application that use crystal reports to generate report using CR viewer to preview it. Everything was working fine on my laptop. I compiled and packaged it using installshield. To test it, i installed it on 3 computers. It's running fine on only one comp. The rest of the computers had similiar problems. This Runtime Error '429': Active X Component cannot create object. After which, the application was terminated. The only difference between the working computer and the non-working computers is that it has crystal reports and VB SDK installed. Kindly help to advise how do i rectify this problem such that it can work on computers that dont have crystal report nor VB installed. (End users computer.) Thanks to all. Is there a way i can trace the missing files? or is there some permission rights? The error only occured after i try to generate a report with crystal reports. Otherwise it's functioning fine.

I tried using installshield to scan for all known dependencies but to no avail. Please help!

What version of Crystal?  Did you include any of the CR Runtime files at all in your installation?  Do you have a Developer version of CR?  Look in your Seagate/Crystal/BusinessObject directory for Runtime.chm or Runtime.hlp for a list of the files that need to be distributed with an application using the CR Runtime.

If you've go CR 9 or higher, you can download the Runtime merge modules from the BO site and include them in your installer package:

On the machines with problems do the users have permissions in the Crystal directories?

Crystal Reports Version 9
I include all the crview9.dll, most of the things related to CR.

Which edition of CR9.  You need Developer or Advanced to call reports from an application.
