i'm really new to this site & to VB2005 - please help
Reading all these posts are getting me confused.

I use Visual Basic 2005 (Visual Studio 2005 ... not Express)

I have created an app that works fine on my computer, but NOT on another computer.
I want to place my App on the server & run it from another machine.

What do I have to do?
How do I know if .NET 2.0 is installed on the other machine?

Thanks for any assistance.. i really need a friend here!

On App property page -> folder "Publish" click "Prerequisite" -> check any components you need and than publish your App

ok. ...now I get a message (on other computer, while trying to install)

System Update Required:
unable to install or run the application. The application requires that assembly CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework Version 11.0.3300.0 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first.

what the heck is that? it's not in the Publish\Prerequisite list

OK. On the same page click "Application files". You will see "publish status" for "CrystalDecisions..." is set "Prerequisite(auto)". Change it to "Include". That's it.

tried it. ... it seems there is a compatibility issue with Visual Studio 2005 & Crystal Reports XI.

i am downloading Release 2 of Crystal Reports XI now. (wow... HUGE Download!)

thanks for your help... i'll have to remember Prerequisite & Include

should i always "include"?

Actually, if the client computer doesn't have all nessesary DLL's, you have to set it "include".

Just click the button "accept". Grade it as "A", if you satisfied. That's it.
