I have a web application created with Visual Studio 2008 and I need to deploy two Crystal reports.  On my machine the reports work fine, but when I move them to the test server I the following error:

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=12.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

The version of the dll's I have is 12.0.1100.683.  When I change the version in my web config to 12.0.1100.0 then I get an error stating the tag CR is not vailid.

How are you moving them?

You need to build an install package and include the CR2008 runtimes.

I'm new at this.  I have imported the crystal reports into the Visual Studio website I've created.  The reports run fine on my machine, but fail when I attempt to run them on the server.

Crystal requires numerous support files.  You need to include them.  This is generally done by building an installation package.

Could you help me troubleshoot my current deployment?   I created the build file per the tutorial http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb971182.aspx  but I am apparently still missing some reference.

When I try and visit the page on the server I get a generic "Load Report Failed." message with no additional messages as to where to start looking.
