vb6 application using Crystal Reports Viewer 10

I have written an application in vb6 which uses Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 10.0 and the Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Run Time Library 10.0 as references.  Could someone please tell me what I need to do to prepare the client computer for running this application, i.e. what .dll and .ocx files need to be on and registered.  E.g. I know that I need the crviewer.dll copied and registered, but what else?  Please help, I'm swimming in run-time errors.
Thanks

Merge Modules

I think version 8.5 was the last time you could just copy files.  I've used 8.5 and now XI and the merge modules were easy and fixed all of the errors

Thanks all - I'll give merge modules some points because I *should* familiarize myself with that for deployments, and it really is a good way to work.  But I have to give mlmcc most of the loot for the deployment article - it gave me enough info so that I could extract what I needed for this deployment in Crystal X.  THANKS!!
