Com Object is not valid or registered

Hi.

I have CRXI and I made my reports using that.  On my .NET 2003 development machine, i select "CrystalReportsViewer" and then view my report.  It works fine.  This is using the 9.0 CR Viewer.

When I load on a client machine I get "Com Object not valid or registered" - not when i open the form with the viewer but when i try to load a report.

i figured my install set wasn't complete... so i went ahead and tried a few times, then just installed CRXI as a test on the test machine & guess what?  Same error....

So I figured my report must be wrong, and imported it into VB.NET instead of opening it as a file, and i get the same error.

When I open the report in CRXI on the test machine it works fine.

So I figured I didn't have the 9.msm files correct, but i DL'ed those and installed them too... and no luck...

Any ideas?

Here is the basic code I use.  It is VB but should be similar to ,Net

Option Explicit
    Private crApp As CRAXDRT.Application
    Private crRpt As CRAXDRT.Report

On Error GoTo errHandler

'
'   Check if report is already in use
'
    If IsObject(crRpt) Then
       Set crRpt = Nothing
    End If

'
'   Open report
'
    Set crApp = New CRAXDRT.Application

    Set crRpt = crApp.OpenReport("Full Path to report.rpt, 1)


'
' Set the viewer's report source to the Report object
'
    Me.rptCRViewer.ReportSource = crRpt
    Me.rptCRViewer.ViewReport
    Me.Show

You need to include the CR XI merge modules with the install.

Why are you using the CR9 viewer and not the CRXI viewer?

Blow away the C:\Documents and Settings\$username$\Application
Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1 directory
and restart VS.NET 2003.

        Dim path As String

        Dim crReportDocument As New ReportDocument
        crReportDocument.Load(path)
        crviewer.ReportSource = crReportDocument
        Me.crviewer.Show()

So I pass in the full path... same error... i am getting very fustraited.

I also tried importing the report into VB and then

dim rpt as new crAll
crviewer.reportsource=rpt
crviewer.show

and i still get the same error!
