Crystal Reports 11.5 (R2) Chart not displayed in Report Viewer with VB6 app

We have an existing VB6 app that has been deployed successfully over the years to various PC's. This app already displays several crystal reports in the viewer ok.
A new report was requested this time to show a chart, the report was created and tested successfully on the dev PC but when deployed for testing the chart did not show/render.
I assumed there are missing dll's on the test PC - but am not sure what they are.  
I have searched and the sscsdk80.dll and chartui.dll are there. So if anyone knows a list of definitive dlls required for deployment - please advise. This is a windows app - VB6 using CR11.5 (R2)
I have checked with SAP - no luck - just lots of similar requests.
Please post the list of dll's not a link to a website.
Thanks.

Did you install the CR XI R2 runtimes or merge modules on the test PC?

We have a team that creates an MSI with the required DLL's based on the VB6 deployment package. They don't want to include all the runtimes/merge modules due to the size.
They only want the required dll's.
Is there a location where you can get just the runtimes for distribution? I found a link but on install it wanted a product key.

Well, found "a" solution - not sure if it's correct or not - but I ran Dependency Walker over the app and used the profiler to check the report creation.
Then checked the dll's with errors/issues - found that although the C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Common\3.5\bin\SSCSDK80.DLL existed and was registered Dependency Walker couldn't see SSCSDK80.DLL as it expected it to be in the  C:\Program Files\<app name> folder.
So I just copied the exisiting SSCSDK80.DLL file there and the chart magically appeared.

Go figure??

How did you try to install the runtimes?

They are meant to be installed by the installation program that has the product key.

This solution fixed the issue. So the "MSI" team will rebuild and deploy this file to both locations (C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Common\3.5\bin and C:\Program Files\<app name> folders).
