Native XML Driver Deployment

For a while we had trouble using the native xml driver, but it has been worked out here:

VB6 & XML Datasource using Native XML Driver

In that thread there was mention of deploying the driver, and some extra work that needed to happen. I found those instructions repeated again here for another user:

We have followed the instructions of coping the required files and java runtime to a new test client, but our reports do not launch.. we get this error after a good 30 seconds of hang-time,

Invalid Argument Provided

I've doubled checked the instructions and all files are copied, and edited the crconfig.xml to point to the new j2re bin folder. There doesn't appear to be many discussions with this error, what does it mean? Thanks.

Note that we are using the RDC, Native XML Driver, Crystal Reports XI R2 SP4.

    Searching for the error here:

    I come up with a note regarding this being tracked and resolved in a Service Pack. As you are using CR XI release 1 (going from the orginal post), the latest RDC merge modules are here;

    If you did not download the msm from the above link, try that in your deployment project. If you are using the msm files from the above link, try the following;

    1) Download the Modules utility from here:

    and compare the dlls loading on the working and non working computers.

    2) If you can, install the CR designer (just as a test) on the non working computer. See if that resolves the issue. If it does, at lease we'll know it's something due to dll differences between msm runtime and CR install, which we could again check using Modules.
