    Hi Nancy,

    How about telling us why you need to know? Is it a dependency question or are you just curious what it does?

    Looking at the source code it's used for just about everything in all platforms.

    Thank you

    • Hi Nancy,

      It looks as though it's used to convert UNICODE characters back and forth between the various reporting dll's and the CR activeX viewer and possibly some export types also.It may also be due to the version of usp10.dll which we only support version 1.422.x.x

      On your test PC go into Regional and Languages settings and check on in the Advanced tab and Default User settings check on Apply all settings.... and then in the Language tab check on Install files for complex scripts.

      If that doesn't fix it try enable install logging on your test runtime only PC and install Crystal Reports Designer to see if that fixes the missing file dependency. If not then when we built CR 2008 we did not include Windows 2000 as a supported platform. So this may be an endless process and the final result may be it's simply not do-able.

      That dll belongs to Microsoft so you may want to search their site for more info on what it does and what dependencies it may also have.

      Thanks again
