Deployment Shared ISP

I'm using Crystal 11 with asp.net just generating the pdf, not using the report viewer control, working ok on local dev. I've got the standalone version not just the one with VS (if that makes any difference i don't know), and I'm trying to deploy to a shared ISP (so I can't just instal it there).
I'm getting:
'Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommLayer, Version=10.5.3700.0'
I've got references to (all with Property 'Copy Local' set to True) :
CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
CrystalDecisions.ReportSource
CrystalDecisions.Shared
CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner (prob no necesary)
CrystalDecisions.Web
what else?

YOu will have to install the appropriate runtimes for Crystal and Visual Studio on the ISP.

Most won't do it or want you to pay for your own server.

Are you really saying that Crystal will only work on ISP's who have installed the runtime?

That is correct.  There are numerous dlls you need to have installed on the server.

Also, installing on an ISP requires an expensive license from Crystal.  Better check with them before you continue down that path.

The license is required even on your own server if the reports are available to people outside your organization.
