Ha ben mon vieux !
If I understand, you try to print a report from a client machine where no crystal is installed (Am I right?) If so, you'll have to install those DLL files. What I usually do is to create a Visual Basic project with all the crystal objects in it (Crystal viewers, OCX ...) compile it and create a package to distribute with the "Package & Deployment Wizard". You have to "Install" the package on each client machine to register the DLLs.
VB is always better to register a DLL in the registry.
If you have Visual studio 6.0 or VB 6 ...
If not, I think you'll have to register manually each DLL, using REGSVR32.
The list of DLL is in the "C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Developer Files\Help\Crystal reports Developer Runtime Help"
If you are using VFP 7.0, maybe it's more efficient with InstallShield, but I did not try that.
P.S. I hope that you install all the Developers components from the Crystal CD. If you still have problem register or distribute Crystal application, take a look at the Crystal forum. Distributing crystal runtime is not a Fox problem, but a Crystal Report problem.
