I am having some problems installing an app using CR 9. I want to use the merge modules. I have included the CRE Components and the RD Components. I allow the user to view the reports on screen or print them. I also directly access MS Access. Does the merge module take care of everything for me or do I also have to include the individual dlls in my install project? Do I have to include the Registration module (keycode)? If so, which key do I put in for the value?

Hi Bill,

If you are using an InstallScript project, there's currently an issue with the Crystal MSMs. This will be fixed in the service pack.

If I change to .msi project, will I have the same problem with the merge modules and Crystal Reports? The only other question is will the .msi project run under Windows 98?

Hi Bill,

You won't have this problem. And, InstallScript MSI projects work on 98. However, I wouldn't suggest changing just because of this bug. The SP is due out pretty soon.
