help please crystal reports .net issue

P: n/a
I am using Crystal Reports in my application I made using Visual Studio.NET.
I installed my application on the client machine, with all the DLLs
required(added the merge modules), the engine and the rest. When I start my
application and, from it, try to open up a report I get an exception "Query
engine error: C:\WINDOWS\Temp\temp_*******.rpt" with some wierd numbers
instead of *******. Can anyone tell me what the problem is here and how to
solve it. I am running the application on Windows 98.

Did you install the crystal engine separately on the
target machine, it can be downloaded from the crystal
website.
I had a similar problem until the report engine was
installed (it is not added to the set-up program by
default)

Rob,

No I haven't installed the crystal engine separately but I am
confused on why we would need to? So we develop an application and sell it
but the user has to goto crystal reports to download the engine separately?
Doesn't sound like a good solution. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.

I just attended an online chat today at Microsoft and asked this question...

You have to get the newest merge modules.

which is apparently crystal_regwiz2003.msm.

and no, I don't know where to find them....

This link shoudl get you started. Ive noticed that Crystal and MS dont
really play well together in terms of communication. My experiences with 9
have been mediocre. In any case, here:

Hello,

Thanks for the help so far. We are still on vs.net 2002 with the
bundeled version of cr . The Crystal Reports managed components are
9.1.3300. We have all of the merge modules they suggested for this type of
configuration. Any other ideas on what the problem is? The current
deployment isn't working on either a 98 or xp pro machine. We have also
added vc-stl.msm and vc_crt.msm to work with ado.net.

Hi, I am having a similar problem. I am using VS.NET 2002 with
VB.NET. I am attempting to deploy a client-server application, but it
will not work in Windows 98. It simply pops up a window that says
"Database Login", and whatever I type in as the parameters, like
server name, database name etc., it says "Login Failed". There is no
runtime error, even though I have a try-catch block. I believe it is
because the database I am using is on the server, but shouldn't it
recognize which database connection to use? Help!

Another problem is, I am using MS Access, so I am using ODBC
connections, so I do not really have a "database server". The rest of
the application seems to work except the reports.
