Crystal Report designer in VB 6.0

Posted on 2006-07-17
Last Modified: 2013-11-14
I have a VB app the allows data entry, and an on demand report on that table.

On the system where the app was developed no problem.

Use Package and deployment wizard.  Install on users desktop. Data entry works fine.

When the report is run, I get a logon error???  Used trusted connection in the Crystal Design

What Crystal dlls did you include with the dployment.  VB knows very little about which you need so most aren't included.

Which version and edition of Crystal?

I would change craxddrt9 to craxdrt9.  You don't need craxddrt9 unless you are using some of the dlls that require payment.

Have uninstalled the app rebuilt the Package from the ground up, removing the craxddrt9 from the package but still get the same error.

I have tried to install the app on a server with Crystal installed and now I get error 5003!!!

I am beginning to think that I'm going to have to get InstallShield to install applications correctly.  Apparently the VB packager is pure junk.
I always used installshield at previous sites, but this one doesn't currently own it.

I think you may right.  Microsoft has an upgraded version.  I think it is called WINstall.
