While creating Setup of Application you should add Prerequisites of Crystal Report. For this:
- Click Right Mouse button on Setup Project.
- A setup Property Page Will display. Click on Prerequisites button.
- Collection Of Prerequisites will display. If You are using VS2008, Click of CheckBox "CrystalReport basis for visual Studio 2008". And Click on OK.
- Now you can build your Setup Project.
- The setup file itself installs required components for viewing Crystal Report on Clients computer.


Please take a look at this post.
