Report Fails on New Server - Looking for CrystalXIRuntime.msi

Hi - I have been trying to migrate to a new webserver but cannot get one of my apps to run, Our former developer - who I cannot find - used Crystal Runtime in a reporting app and I cannot seem to get the right version of the runtime installed on the new server.

Our existing server has been running for 3 years and this app has been on there for a while. When I prepped the new server I installed Crystal 11 .Net Server software. However, one of my apps still does not run. I get the following error:


Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Source Error:

Line 34:<compilation debug="false" strict="false" explicit="true">

Line 35: <assemblies>

Line 36: <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692FBEA5521E1304"/>

Line 37: <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.Shared, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692FBEA5521E1304"/>

Line 38: <add assembly="CrystalDecisions.ReportSource, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692FBEA5521E1304"/>


Now - I have copied ALL of the files including all dlls. from Inetpub down, from the existing server to the new server. I notice that in addition to Crystal 11 .Net Server, I have something called simply "Crystal Runtime" on the existing server. When I click support information in Control Panel it says version 1.0.0 but when I click on "Repair", it tries to find a source file called CrystalXIRuntime.msi. I cannot find this anywhere.

Im thinking I need to install this or register some of the dlls on the new server.

I am desparate to get this going. Can anyone help me with this dilema?

    Hello Michael,

    please download and install the [CR XI server install|] on your new server.

    This should fix the problem.

    Anyway, I strongly recommend [to update to CR XI R2|] for free and to continue with this product release.

    Best regards

    The application isn't using XI, but the embedded Crystal Report runtime that comes with Visual Studio 2005.

    Look at this thread for getting runtimes for version 10.2:
