Default Deploying Crystal Report in a Production environment

Finsihed reading chapter 9 on developing reports using Crystal reports.

We gave up on Crystal when using Visual Studio 2003.

Creating reports was never a problem. Deploying Crystal to a production machine was impossible, back then.

We spent weeks with Microsoft and Crystal and still could not get it deployed to that environment. Back then crystal had a runtime that one needed to deploy and run on your machine in order for customers to be able to run reports. Sure it is integrated with Visual Studio, but was not part of the .Net Framework.

Has that changed? Can someone tell me how to now deploy Crystal runtime engine?

Thanks,
realkewl

Figured out how to deploy Crystal Reports. The process is much smoother than VS 2003 and VS 2005. I am happy to say also that we will now develop our next project using Crystal reports. Here's how to deploy it:

1. Locate on your development computer the following directory:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\CrystalRe ports10_5

2. Within the directory locate the following file for x86 computers:
CRRedist2008_x86.msi

3. Run the file on the server where you plan to deploy Crystal reports.

4. Reboot the server.


The msi installs and registers all the dll's needed to run Crystal Reports.

Happy Coding :-)
