Hello every one
I wish you are all fine.

I developed a small vb.net 2012 application, then I used the crystal report for viewing reports.
my problem is that when I run that app. on my PC, it works fine, but when I run it on another PC, then the reports don't work.

how can I solve that problem?

regards...

Your application install needs to take care of installing the Crystal Runtime as a prerequisite.

Info about the various Crystal Runtime options and download links are available from: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824

Another thing you can do (my report vendors do this) is to create a PDF file from your report. Then anybody can read it. This works well and avoids distributing Crystal Reports.

Is the application running on the server or the client?

You will need to install the runtimes on the appropriate machines.
