I made a web site using Visual Studio.net 2008 (asp.net 2.0), i have used the crystal report that comes with this visual studio.net 2008 wich has version (10)(which is basic). I need to deploy this web site to our server of windows server 2003, so whenever i upload my web site to the server it show me, that can't load some of the dll of (Crystal Report), so it give me a runtime error.

I need the right way to deploy those dll to the server.?

Note:
I have a Liciened of Crystal Report of version 11. that is not like the one that come's with Visual studio.net.

So Can you give the smart way of doing to deploy crystal report, on server.??

Regards

Search in the crystal report site the merge modules that you need, once you have downloaded them only integrate them in your setup project

You might check this document for how to deploy.  Deployment starts on page 434.

You can use the merge modules or the use the crystal runtime.  The easiest way to get them to work is run the Visual Studio setup on the server and choose only the Crystal files.  This will install everything you need.
