Hi,

You may have to deploy Merge Module of Crystal Reports. you can better get that from Crystal Reports site and make sure that you download same version as you are using.
Alternatively, try to add all related/dependant dll in bin in devoplemnt environment and make sure that those are in intalled package and destination directory after intall.

Thanks

Try this:

Right click the crystal report file then select properties. On the properties toolbar select build action. change the value of build action to content.

Rebuild your solution. create new installer then install your application.

You need to install the runtime files on the client machine.

Try to install this: http://www.blog.jcalonso.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/CRRedist2005_x86.msi
