When the Setup Wizard is used with a project that contains the CrystalReports custom control (Crystl16.ocx), the Setup Wizard prompts for theuser to locate Crxlat16.dll. This DLL is not on the system. The file\Windows\system\crxlate.dll should be used instead.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be an issue in the products listed above.We are researching this problem and will post new information here in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base.
The file Crxlat16.dll was incorrectly placed in the list of files requiredby Crystal Reports in Swdepend.ini. To avoid the Setup Wizard asking forthis file, open up \Windows\swdepend.ini in Notepad. Locate the[CRYSTL16.OCX] section, and modify the following line:


Save Swdepend.ini, and Setup Wizard will not prompt for the file again. Nowlocate the same line in \Vb\setupwiz\kitfiles\sw16tmpl.ini and modify it inthe same manner as above.


  1. Start a new project. Form1 is created by default.
  2. Choose Tools...Custom Controls from the menu, and select the Crystal Reports custom control.
  3. The Crystal Reports controls should now be visible in the Toolbox. Place this control on Form1.
  4. Save the project and form as Project1.vbp and Form1.frm in the vb directory.
  5. Run the Setup Wizard. When prompted for the project file in step 1 of the Setup Wizard, select Project1.vbp in the vb directory. Choose Next for steps 2-6 in the Setup Wizard, accepting the defaults.
Upon reaching step 6, the Setup Wizard prompts you to locate Crxlat16.dll.
