ERROR: Could not load a file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Shared, version=9.1.5000.0,culture=neutral,publickeytoken=692fbea551e1304' or one of teh dependencies .

Hello experts,

I am having a reallly bad time today as i am  not able to  overcome the following error

***********
Could not load a file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Shared, version=9.1.5000.0,culture=neutral,publickeytoken=692fbea551e1304' or one of teh dependencies .

*****************

I have added merge modules: Crystal_RegWiz2003.msm, Crystal_Database_Access2003_enu.msm, Crystal_Database_Access2003.msm and Crystal_Managed2003.msm and even VC_User_CRT71_RTL_X86_---.msm and VC_User_STL71_RTL_X86_--- .msm in my setup file.

I have read in a link as to
*****************
......Reports will have to be loaded from disk. ****Reports can be loaded from disk by specifying a file path using the .Load() method of the Reportdocument object. When deploying applications that do not embed report files, the report files must be manually added to the setup projects****.

****************************

what do we mean by manually loading the Reportdocument object and how do we do that

Any help would be greatly appriciated

Hi!  I can certainly relate to what you are feeling.

Are you seeing the can not load assembly error when running the program on your computer or on a 'client' machine?

Have you seen this document yet?

We've had problems at times getting the .net setup & deployment project to work correctly so I frequently will 'cheat' and install crystal reports on the client computer using this ( a self -contained msi that installs the needed crystal reports components )

topdog770Commented:
yeah.. using the cr9netredist.zip file.. install the msi on the client machine.

On your development machine, do you have crystal report, I'm presuming, that's used by your application and displays correctly?
