I have develop application using delphi 7 and crystal report 10 for reporting.
Now, I want to install that application at client PC (windows xp)

I already copy .exe and .dll (like craxdrt.dll, crviewer.dll, crqe.dll, etc.) of crystal report but there is an error when I try to viewing the report -> Error 512 : Printer engine not opened

Anyone can help me??

Thanks before.

    well, i can only guess
    -> maybe no default printer assigned or no printer installed in the os-preferences?

    Can you show us the code you use for the crystal handling? Error 512 is *usually* caused by a missing OR (read carefully) a failed call to the PEOpenEngine function. Could be that your missing some of the runtime libraries (like crpe32.dll).
