    Hi,

    The merge modules contains the required dll's of crystal reports, in order to run the crystal reports on other client machine which doesn't have CR installed.

    You need to include that merge module in the setup file of the application.

    To download the appropriate merge module click [here|http://resources.businessobjects.com/support/additional_downloads/runtime.asp#09]

    To know more about merge module and its installation take help from [Dev library|https://boc.sdn.sap.com/node/7770].

    Hope this help!!

    Regards,

    Amit

    For latest information concerning merge modules and their download locations, I highly recommend the Wiki page:

    [https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/CrystalReportsforVisualStudio.NETRuntimeDistribution-Versions9.1to12.0]

    It'll be updated as new versions come out.

    What you're looking for is CR 10.5 (VS 2008).

    Sincerely,

    Ted Ueda

    Thanks for both of your responses. I have installed CRRedist2008_x86 on my test user machine. I am getting the following error when trying to view the reports.

    What could be causing this?

    See the end of this message for details on invoking

    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    • JIT Debugging **************

    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

    application or computer (machine.config) must have the

    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

    The application must also be compiled with debugging

    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>

    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

    rather than be handled by this dialog box.
