I'm using 2005 visual studio. I have made a windows application, using visual basic language along with crystal reports. My crystal reports function well whenever i run it within the unpublish project but the time I published the project the crystal reports always fail. Because it can't find the RPT file which before is inside my unpublished project folder.

I would like to know is there a way to make my crystal reports load whenever the project has been publish?

I'm just a beginner, really need help.

Note: I wonder do i still have to install crystal report viewer on my pc to let it run even though i already have visual studio installed which offers a crystal report viewer within it.
