Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
We have an ASP.NET/VB.NET application using .NET 2.0 and Crystal XI Release 2 installed on a web server. When we attempt to access a Crystal report, the following message is received:
Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine Version=11.5.3700.0
The file does exist on the server and was installed properly. Accessing the same report using the COM SDK and craxdrt.dll works properly.
Any special steps that need to be taken to correct this? Does this module need to be registered in any specific way?
It is mandatory to deploy correct version of runtime files.
