Today I got this error, when I tried to deploy an application developed using Visual Studio 2005 and Crystal Reports 10.
I googled the problem and found out many solutions which worked for many people. But only one solution worked for me. Anyway I will post all the things that I have tried.
Solution #1Run ‘CRRedist2005_x86.msi’. This file can be found on ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\CrystalReports’. And if you have already installed this you will be prompted to Repair or Uninstall. But none is required if it’s already installed.
Solution #2Uninstall the Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005 using the Visual Studio Instalation DVD and Reinstall it again.
Steps to uninstall the Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005
- Insert the Setup DVD
- Select ‘Change or Remove Visual Studio 2005’ (Then the setup will run on Maintenance Mode)
- Select ‘Add or Remove Features’
- Uncheck the ‘Crystal Reports For Visual Studio’ checkbox
- Click on ‘Update’ button
- Afterwards do the above steps and on step 4 select the ‘Crystal Reports For Visual Studio’ checkbox and click on ‘Update’ button
Solution #3Create a setup using the Crystal Reports Merge Module, It can be downloaded from http://support.businessobjects.com/downloads/merge_modules.asp. And run it on the deployment machine
Solution #3 worked for me..Hope this will be helpful to you …………
