    hi Hari,

    I do not seem to understand your question well. Do you want you client to just "view" your reports? If this is the case, you just have to install Crystal Report on the server.

    If you want each of your clients to view the reports locally, Crystal Report will then need to be installed on each of your client computer

    Thanks for ur reply !!

    I have a server and a windows application...

    I need the crystal report file to be placed in server and how the windows application which runs from a different computer will access or load the crystal report from the server ?

    For loading a crystal report from Local computer we use

    CrystalReport.Load("Local System Path");

    So whats the syntax for loading a crystal report from a server ?
