crystal reports issue

P: n/a
Below is a post of mine that was about 6 weeks ago.
subject: help please crystal reports .net issue
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 "Queryengine error: C:\WINDOWS\Temp\temp_*******.rpt" with some weird 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.


I figured out what is causing the problem but I need a way to resolve it.

The problem seems to be that we are installing the application in
\application folder\bin

So for example it would be c:\program files\vcneti\bin\vcneti.exe opposed to
the default install which is

c:\program files\vcneti\vcneti.exe

So if I create a setup package putting the project output under application
data it works. It seems that the crystal report .dll's are put in the
application folder and are not being referenced. If I put the project output
in a folder that I create under application folder I get the error. How can
I resolve this? Thanks in advance.

I thought I answered this about 6 weeks ago. =)

The issue is the Merge Modules, in which case there really aren't good ones
out there unless provided by InstallSheild... Now that is what I did, was
download install shield (which I use anyways) and got the
crystal_regwiz2003.msm file from it and used it.

That fixed all my crystal problems.
