Problem installing Crystal 8.5 Runtime on Windows 7


I am having a problem trying to get my Crystal 8.5 reports to run under windows 7.

I am sure it has to do with the Runtime DLLs not being installed properly on the workstation.

I have an old 'Setup' program that was used to install the Crystal 8.5 runtime files on Windows XP.

However, this program craps out when run on Windows 7 and I do not have the original source.

I have found numerous posts regarding what/where DLLs need to be installed but so far have not had any luck.

My scenario is exactly the same as the following post only I am trying to run the reports on a Windows 7 machine.


The Error I get is:

Error: 532 Cannot find database DLL. Execute <PEStartPrintJob>

I am using SQL Server, OLEDB.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.
