crpe32.dll failing to load

I am receiving an error on the production computers that I am installing my windows app on

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.CRPE' threw an exception. ---> CrystalDecisions.Shared.CrystalReportsException: Could not load C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\crpe32.dll.

Funny though that on a virtual machine that I am installing it on with a ghosted image of the failing computers, I am not getting this error.

Should I have the user restart their PC before loading the app

Any help would be appreaciated.

Either this x86 runtime distribution file:

Or x64 depending on which one you complied your app to use:

Thanks again
