Crystal Reports XI - Deployment problem



When we add a (Crystal) report (eg. Report1.rpt) to the project in visual studio, it automatically adds the references to the v10 dlls of Crystal Reports.

When I choose to manually add another reference, I can only see the v10 dlls.

I donu2019t understand how I got this v10.2.3600.0, I donu2019t know where they come from and I canu2019t seem to remove them. Thereu2019s nothing in the u201CControl Panel > Add/Remove program listu201D that indicates Crystal Reports 10 being intalled. This v10.2.3600.0 dll files are situated in: u201CC:\Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\2.7\Managedu201D

Itu2019s logic that when I publish / deploy the entire web application to the server, it will give an error.

The error we get when browsing to the webpage is the following.

"Register Assembly = "CrystalDecisions.Web. Version = 10.2.3600.00, Culture neutral, PublicKey ... could not be loaded"

What Iu2019m trying to do is embbed a report into an aspx page, using the CrystalReportViewer from the CrystalDecisions.Web dll.

Basically this is all the aspx page contains.

<CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server" AutoDataBind="true" />
