In order to distribute compiled versions of my reports I need scr8_distr_expert.exe. However it has been removed from the business object web site. Is it available anywhere else?  I used Crystal Report 8.5 developers to develop reports in my visual basic application and wish to distribute it with out requiring the users to install crystal reports .

That addin is for compiling the report itself not for including the reports with a VB application.

Is there a way to get the reports to run in VB without having to install Crystal on the computers I am running the compiled version of my programs on?

SUre.  You can write a program in VB to view reports.
