Published crytal report crashing on opening

Hi,
 
I have a published report which is working fine on machines that have VS2008 installed. however when i try and run it on a machine that only have .net 3.5 installed the report will install fine however it crashes when you try and open it.

Any ideas?

do i need some kind of viewer installed on the machines without VS2008?

below is the event which i get in the event viewer on the pc.

Yes you need to install the viewer. Check in your C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\CrystalReports10_5 folder
