Arrow Deploying .Net Application with Crystal Reports


Hi I'm new in vb.net in terms of deployment, I have a project that uses a crystal report and I'm planning of deploying it.

The problem is, is there a common setup for the components that was used in my project so I don't need it to manually register on the client pc?

Many Thanks!

Assuming you are creating an installer you should be able to include the Crystal Reports Merge Modules in your setup package. As long as you've got your development version registered, I believe the deployed components should work based on your registration. Unfortunately, it's been about 6 years since I've played with this, so I don't recall exactly what I had to do. There may also be some changes in the way things worked from .NET 1.0 to the current version.

I just deployed a project using VS 2008 and Crystal Reports basic 2008. The MSM files seemd to have no effect on the application function. The only way I could get it to work was to manually install the following before installing my application:

CRRedist2008_x86.msi

If you right-click on you setup project, then click properties, you will see a dialog box with a "Prerequisites" button on it. Click that button and check the item "Crystal Reports Basic for VS 2008". Then select the "Download from the same location as my application" setting.

This will deploy the needed setup files in separate folders along with your application setup file.
