what files reqrd to view report (ttx source) on distributed client


I have been given the task of determining which files are required to be distributed to a client machine for view a report based on a ttx file.

I am not the developer of the application with is being developed in Delphi (using VCL). The report's data source is a ttx file. The developer has Crystal Reports installed on his computer and I have crystal reports (v8.5) installed on my computer. His application runs on his computer and it runs on my computer.

When the application is installed on a third computer (which doesnt have crystal reports installed) viewing the report does not run. That is, the application shows the data records returned, but does not display a preview of the report. I dont know if this helps, but an error of "Invalid class string" appears.

I would like to know what files (probably dll files) are required to be present on that third (see above) machine in order for the report to be previewed/printed to screen.

There's an article on Crystal Decisions web site that provides a solution to a problem very similar to yours.  Here's the link: http://support.crystaldecisions.com/kbase/c2007810.asp

Good luck!
