Default using visual basic to integrate crystal report


I am currently trying to use visual basic 5.0 to integrate crystal report version 9 to create a setup file so that my destination computer without the crystal report dll or the installer can view the report.

But i have been having errors either there is an error in the unicow.dll or there is the runtime error, unable to open the file. I have been using the application setup wizard for this task.

May I know if anyone of you know the source codes to be written in the visual basic and the dll needed in order for the setup to be executed successfully.

If you look at the documentation that comes with Crystal 9 (I do not use crystal 9), there should be a list of runtime files that are needed. Usually you have to include these into the setup program manually. Also with Crystal and it has always been a problem, If on your Dev machine you were getting the data from a database called say "C:\mytest\mydb.mdb", but on the deployment machine the database is on "D:\topdir\mydb.mdb", Crystal will not automatically point to the correct place. It is best to compile your project with the intended destination, this is also a likely cause for the error 'unable to open file'
