Crystal Reports for Visual Studio, application does not work on client PC



I created a crystal reports application in visual studio 2019 with CRforVS13SP29, called in the crystal report and print the report to a pdf file. I have tested the code and works perfectly on my PC. When I run the executable on the clients PC I receive the below error from the event viewer in windows. I also tried creating a setup msi that included CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Prompting and CrystalDecisions.Shared. This did not work either. I'm not sure what the issue is. I have tested the app on 2 client PCs and it doesnt work on either of them.

Application: ARInvoicePrint.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
