Cannot export to Excel in Crystal report (cr8)

I have an application written in vb6 and uses cr8 Crystal report. In the

past, the end users were able to export the report to Excel...They have an

option of Exporting to Excel 5, 7 and 8.


But lately, they were not able to do so, export to Excel will just close the

application down without any warning.


We all currently have Office 2007 installed, and I am not sure if that is

the cause of the issue. But when I export the report from my development

machine I have this option to pick  "Excel 97-2000" (I donu2019t' see the "Excel

5, 7, 8" option at all), the report exported successfully. I believe I have

VS 2003 and VS 2008 installed on my machine and that's why I have this newer

version of Excel option available.


What should I include in my install pack so that my end-users will see the

"Excel 97-2000" ?


Please advice. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
