Thanks for the reply.
Is innosetup acts like the Package and deployment Wizard?i mean, is innosetup create a installer or just a script that you can use in your installer?
Try Downloading and using it. It will create a Installer for you.

ive already install my projects in another pc, and it was succesful, just like the Previous installer that was made in P&DW, but still i have the same problem, here is the scenario:
i have a button that will trigger my report(made in crystal report8.5) to show(data is from mysql server,connection throug odbc is ok), but every time i press the button,it will only flash the report(open then close immediately) then the error "Physical database not found" exist, ive already solve this problem by installing crystal report 8.5 in my pc, but then, i dont have to install crstal report in every client pc, it seems that there is dll file that are not registerd in my pc. is there a way to run my projects with link to crystal report without installing crystal report in client pc?pls help
Include crystal32.ocx and cviewer.dll into your package etc.

I am using P&DW and Crystal Reports 8.5, i have crystal32.ocx and crviewer.dll in my package. still on the client side, i get an error Error in database dll,
what could be the issue?
I tried Inno, but i guess it does not automatically pick up the dlls required, i have to add them manually, which if i do i might miss out on certain dlls
