After deploying a Visual Studio .NET application using Crystal Reports 2008 connecting to an XM file (using crdb_xml.dll) the following error is produced:
"Failed To Load Database Information"
- The Crystal Reports merge modules and msi files do not include crdb_xml.dll.
- This is by design.
- The driver crdb_xml.dll has dependencies on the Java Runtime Environment.
- The Java Runtime Environment is not included in any Crystal Reports merge modules or msi files.
- See the Blog "How to deploy Crystal Reports 2008 runtime for .NET when the report is connecting to XML files".
