ver 8 Distribution Setup Error

ver 8 Distribution Setup Error

The company has NT 4.0 workstations and just upgraded developer tools from CRW version 6.0 to 8.5.
I downloaded 'scr8_distr_expert.exe' from Crytal Decisions and installed it(Compile Report & Distribution Expert now appearred as selections under the Report menu in CR 8.5).
I first tried the "Compile Report" with the "Distribute Report After" option selected and got an error message stating that the Distribution Report Expert was not installed.
Yet, I was able to subsequently select the Distribution Expert option from the Report menu and create distribution files.

PROBLEM: I can NOT get the Distribution Expert to successfully install on any of 3 different test workstations.  Each effort generates a Dr. Watson event at the very end of the install process.

HOWEVER: Recreating the report in CR 6.0 and using its Distribution Expert DOES work and the report can be run from any of the 3 workstations.

Any sugguestions?
