How are you deploying the application?

Are you using the merge modules?

Are you deploying to each machine or is this web-based?

I`m using merge modules for crystal reports deployment that are auto generated by the vs.net 2005 setup and I`m deploying to each machine

I don't have vs 2005 so I am not sure but I wonder if there is a difference inthe assemblies required for XP and 2K?  In the setup does it allow you to specify the target platform?

Is there a difference in the .Net version on the machines?

It may be in the way you are deploying the application.  Here is a link to explain how to deploy in .Net

I already added these merge modules for the crystal reports but they didn`t function but I downloaded the merge module updates from businessobjects.com that belong to crystal reports for vs.net 2005 and it worked


thanks any way
