If you are not using CR, then you can un-install it from VB, and
the Emerald client.

Optionally, replace your crpe32.dll and crystl32.ocx files from the
Emerald distribution:

expand crpe32.dl_ c:\winnt\system32\crpe32.dll
expand crystl32.oc_ c:\winnt\system32\crystl32.ocx

and it should start working.
