Generated Crystal Report PDFs are different on Windows server



I created Crystal Report template (with two columns on one page) inside VS 2005 on my Windows XP Professional machine. But there are formating problems on both XP and Windows Server machines:

1) On Windows XP machine, I have to overlap the two columns on the page inside VS 2005 editor in order to generate correct PDF file (without overlap). How to fix the the overlapping problem in editor?

2) On Windows 2003 server: After I put the template on Windows 2003 server that has no VS 2005 installed (only CRRedist2005_x86.msi was installed), the generated PDF has different font size and layout (such as page size, column overlap, etc).

Do I have to install VS 2005 on server too? It is really frustrating that I have to print document generated on the server before I know if the template works fine or not.

Any help is highly appreciated!
