database DLL 'crdb_dao.dll' could not be loaded
Posted on 2007-11-19
I created a report in Crystal Reports 9 and coded a VB6 app to display it in the CR viewer. Everything was working fine until I packaged the application using the package and deployment wizard. I did a test install and now, when I try to call the report in VB6, I get the message "database DLL 'crdb_dao.dll' could not be loaded". What is causing this? The message appears when attempting to Access from running from VB6 itself and when running the installed app. It also de-registered one of my ct active x ocx objects. The crdb_dao.dll file is in the directory 'C:\program files\crystal decisions\2.0\bin' folder. Also, is it possible for the crystal report viewer to work within my app, even if a pc it is installed on doesn't have CR installed?
