Crystal report working on development system but not on production system

I'm facing a problem with Crystal Reports and VB.NET

The problem is that my code works locally on my machine but when I deploy it, it seems to be having some authentication issues.

After I deployed my project and a client tries to access it, Crystal Reports are now prompting for username and password of my local development SQL Server instance.

Any suggestions on what could be causing this problem, and how to correct it?

    Hello Guru:

    A few questions:

    1) What version of CR?

    2) What version of .NET?

    3) What OS?

    4) How are you connecting to the database (OLE DB, ODBC, etc.)?

    5) Are you passing the database login in your code?

    Also, don't forget to use the search box in the top right corner of this web page. Lots of info on this topic (KBs, forum posts, articles, blogs, wikis, etc., etc.).
