Crystal Reports Deployment Problem. (CRViewer.dll)
Posted on 2006-04-05
Using VB 6 (sp6)
Crystal Reports 8.5 (sp3)
and install shield 3.5 Express (sp4).
The VB program on my development machine, is pointing to a version of CRViewer.dll that is version 220.127.116.118 dated 8/27/2003.
When I do a build (using install shield) for the VB program I get an Old version of CRViewer.dll, Version 18.104.22.168 - Dated 2/3/2001 in the build.
When I deploy the program using the build to a target machine, it fails to run the report, but the report runs fine on the development machine.
(The target machine gets the CRViewer.dll version 22.214.171.124, because
that is what is in the deployment package.)
But I need to get Version 126.96.36.1998 in the to build.
The problem is: I am using merge modules to get the right combination
of crystal report files into the build.
But I cannot find a merge module that will give me the version 188.8.131.528
of CRViewer.dll, which is what I want. I have downloaded the latest meger modules
from the Macrovision site.
I can manually add the files to the build (in install shield) and
not use the merge modules, but then I might not get the right combination of files I need.
Thanks in Advance,
