This appears to be a custom UFL for the Heat Product Suite by Front Range Solutions.  Did you reinstall Crystal Reports from an OEM disk or from a retail disk?

I'd recommend that you contact your software vendor in order to resolve this issue.

Agree with kurt.  There is probably a dll named like CRUFLxxx.dll (xxx can be anything) that is missing.  You may be able to get it from another machine.
You can install iot in the application or rpeort directory but it needs to be registered.

From what I've read via Google searches, registering this .dll can be difficult, because there are many dependencies.  Check out a free tool called Dependency Walker to help you out:

If his PC was reloaded..do you NOT have this .dll available on one of the OTHER PC's?

It sounds like this computer at one time had Crystal but had to be dumped and reloaded with software. IF so, do you have the .dll on another machine?

I searched the PC and 'u2lhfw.dll' is on the machine.  I am going to search for CRUFL*.dll  can compare it with a working PC.

As I mentioned before, you're going to need to register the .dll. I really recommend that you check out the dependency walker.

I found the issue.  I had to reinstall heat on the local machine - and to install the Crystal Functions.
