    Did you change to use the CR10 dlls or web parts?

    Accepted Solution

    Why is Crystal 10 installed in your staging environment?  Does production have the same?  You may be running into a contention with the Crystal dlls installed versus those that you are deploying (older).  If Crystal 10 is a requirement, then you should upgrade the development environment and package the app with those references and merge modules.

    Staging should mirror prod.  If Crystal 10 is not really needed in Staging or Prod, then I would try un-installing all Crystal references and then deploy your app with the appropriate merge modules for Crystal 9.  Please see the following documentation:

    Crystal 9

    Crystal 10

    Click on the Deployment Document links in both.

    Thank very much for your response and here is the good news.
    I actually was looking for a redistributable that installs CR 9 dlls in windows assembly and fortunately i found it hidden deep down inside one of our company's shared drives.I ran the set up and man i tell you it started working as if it were never bad.
    So got this issue resolved.
    Thank you very much once again for your help.
