Hello

we try to build an Setup-Project, that contains CR for VS2008 (10.5): But there is no merge-Modul for this, there are only some .msi-Files. Is it possible, to add this files to a setup? The VS2008 setup-project do this, but there are a lot of other problems.

Can you help me?

Hi,

the problem is that you cant run the .msi file during your installation because only one installation can happen at a time...

however, you could create a little .net app with progress bar an a worker thread that executes the msi file of crystal reports and run that exe as a custom action after 'setup complete'

the more elegant method would be to use install shield instead of express i guess

regards,
Michael

I was able to install the CR redistributable from VS08 using a custom .PRQ file. If you still need it, I can define it for you.

Cheers!

I used the info from the following article and it worked for me (using InstallShield 12 and 2009):

I launched the Crystal Reports 2008 MSI file using the info from the following article:

I used Installshield 12 and Installshield 2009.
