Deployment of a crystal report application with visual 2005


Hello all,

I am very new at .NET, and this is my first post to this forum.

I've created a report (example.rpt) with Crystal Reports 2008. Then I've installed "Crystal Report for visual .net 2005 component".

Then I've imported it in a project using its Crystal Report Application Template, complied it and succesfully tested it on my machine.

My next objective is to manage the deployment of my report on the end-user machine. Here started my problem.....

Following suggestions I found on the net, I tried to create a Setup Project to deploy my application including Crystal Report runtime components; the report is included in the project as an embedded resource. Apparently the setup project as been correctly builded; if I run it my machine everything is ok but on end-user machine it generated this error:

EventType clr20r3, P1 reportarts.exe, P2, P3 49feecfc, P4 reportarts, P5, P6 49feecfc, P7 e, P8 c6, P9 system.invalidoperationexception, P10 NIL.

I tried on different windows SP2 - SP3 machines, with .NET Framework 2.0 alredy installed but the error is the same.

Can you Help me please???????? THANK YOU in ADVANCE
