Crystal reports Runtime installation on Windows Server 2012 R2


I tried to install the CRRuntime_64bit_13_0_21.msi on the Windows server 2012 R2, I'm getting the error messages, attached is the few screen prints. Do I need any trail license for the runtime on the server? Could you please help me the below error?



We got these errors, but we still see the dll's in the C:\windows\GAC_MSIL directories. When we tried to see if our .NET windows application (64-bit) works with the run-time, getting the below error message. this works fine in the development PC with installed CRforVS_13_0_21.exe.

The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument' threw an exception. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {4DB2E2BB-78E6-4AEA-BEFB-FDAAB610FD1B} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).

    See my reply to your post on this post:

    And stop posting CR for VS questions to SAP Crystal Reports SDK tag, use CR for VS tag, just type in "crystal reports," ( with the comma ) and it will get you there.

    Thank you Don!

    Sorry for creating question with the incorrect tag, since the other question was already answered, I thought it was already closed and I will not get an answer, that's the reason behind creating a new question.
