Viewing Crystal Reports XI on the Internet

I recently upgraded to CR XI Developer edition and am having trouble viewing my reports over the Internet.  When I try to view my report using ASP, I receive an error when the page tries to create the Crystal object:

  Set session("oApp") = Server.CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application.11")

The error that I recieve is:
   Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3)
   Invalid ProgID.

What do I need to install in order for my Windows 2000 Server to load the report?  

I've already installed CR XI Developer edition on the server.

YOu shouldn't have to install the full version on the server.  It may be a permission problem on some dlls.

Check to ensure you have permission to use all the Crystal dlls.

How do I check the permissions on the DLLs and which DLLs would I check?

mlmccCommented:
You need Administrative privileges on the server.  You right click on the file and click PROPERTIES.  There should be a security tab.  It will show the current permissions and allow updates/changes.

Not sure.  I would check all files Crystal installed.

Okay.  I made sure that the account had Administrator privleges and that security was correct on the Business Objects folders and files.  Unfortunately, I was still unable to run the report.

I have a question.  If I had not installed CR Developer on the server (meaning that there would be no Business Objects DLLs, etc on my server), what files would I have needed to copy and install in order to view my reports using ASP pages?

I believe that this is the disconnect that I'm having with this problem.

Crystal hasm't provided a list of required dlls because they want you to use the Merge Modules for deploying report applications.

Should I just install of the merge modules?  I check COM+ and there are no Crystal applications installed.

I figured it out.  The problem was that I didn't have a Crystal COM+ application on my server.

After installing the Crystal merge modules, I launched Component Services and created an application named Crystal Reports (although I could have named it anything).  I then added craxdrt.dll and everything worked fine.

I'm not sure if I was supposed to add it myself or if Crystal should have create the COM+ application.  Either way, it works now.
