I created crystal report on my PC (development PC). I copied that report to servers wwwroot directory. When I try to run it from server it gives me error. Crystal Report is not installed on the server. What I need to do?

You'll need to build a setup project to transfer the required files from your dev machine to the server.

I can't recall the exact steps (you need to include a bunch MSM files in your setup), but the following links should get you started:



The Wrox book "Professional Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET, 2nd Edition" has a whole chapter devoted to deployment / distributing your reports. This book is definitely worth reading, .....
