Build app on one computer, but can't run Crystal Report on another computer.

Hi, i've built an application using VS2010 and Crystal reports.  It works perfectly on the same computer (I've built on).  However, when i move the built files to another computer it gives me an exception "The type initializer for"  "The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.Shared.SharedUtils' threw an exception. ------> System.IO.FileNotFoundException. Could not load file or assembly 'log4net. Version= Culture=neutral..."   

What does that mean, and how to make it work?

Thank you so much.

The Crystal SDK needs to be installed on the other computer.  You have several options for this.  See here - - to download one of the runtime installers.  If you're just copying files for your app and not running an installer for it, you'll probably want to download the .msi installer.  Be sure to get the version that matches the version of the SDK you're using in VS.
