i have done my application that uses crystal report and access database. I try to publish the application but when install on client machine, it wont work. the access database wont load and so the reports. What should i do? can anyone help me?

you need to copy the database in client machine, by making copylocal=true property.
So whenver you publish it takes the new file to build and copy in user machine.

I have try set the properties. I have the database named UTMPOSS.accdb and set it to copy always in the properties, it still won't run and fail when load the database. did I do right?

When you make any changes in db and build the application , do your debug folder is having updated DB?

yes.the database is updated.

I have try deploy and install once more. It does not copy the database to the user computer. I need to copy it manually to the path. C:\Users\rahman86\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\Data\3AG36N4R.YJD\22PYHQ32.Q10\utmp..tion_6ef2d5621379e586_0001.0000_fadd669069f9d6c5\Data

it says the error could not find file in the path.

Try chaning the build action to Compile or something else.
I am not sure about this as i never worked with MS Access DB.

Try going to Project / Properties / Publish and hit Application Files. Change the Publish Status of the db to Data File. I'm sssuming your publishing as click once and you want the db in the data directory because thats where your copying it to.

What does your connection string look like?
