Visual Studio 2008 Crystal Report 10.5 merge modules download

Hi All,

I'm struggling with this problem about 2 weeks and still cannot find the resolution.

I was developed a .Net application with visual studio 2008 and using crystal report to generate report.

It is working fine in my local machine. However, after I deployed the application to web server with microsoft server 2003 64bits server. The report cannot open and I get this error The type initialize for 'crystaldecisions.crystalreports.engine.reportdocument' threw an exception.

I try to install the redistribution package from C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\CrystalReports10_5 but it doesn't work.

Please kindly to help me thank you very much

    You'll find download links for Crystal Reports Basic (v10.5) for VS2008 on the "[Crystal Reports v. 9.1 to 12.x VS .NET Runtime Distribution & Supported Operating Systems|]" wiki page. Scroll down to the CR 10.5 (VS 2008) row and you'll see the links there. Download the one you need.

      Thanks Sir,

      I have resolved my problem by

      1) uninstall previous package CRRedist2008_x64.

      2) enable 32 bits for my server IIS.

      3) install CRRedist2008_x86 from C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\CrystalReports10_5

      Thank you.
