SETUP DEPLOYMENT

A simple question that is a making me pull  off the hair I have letf.
I finish a WINDOWS APPLICATION with VB2005  and one the forms contains a Crystal report viewer with report path of C:\Program\Name..  
I publish this under C:\publish   then I copy all this files to the target machine and run the setup, everything
runs fine but I do not see the report . It tells me that the report fail to load.   Where do I need to put the report on the target machine?. Or what I am doing wrong

Did you copy the rpt file to the local machine? You will need to deploy that as well.

If you have the crystalreport created then select the file (using browse from the combobox) and choose add to project. This way it will embedded the file into the exe project and you don't need to deploy the rpt file.
