What Crystal Reports files/dlls are needed to deploy Windows application?

I'm trying to build a deployable package for a Windows application. I'm using Visual Studio 2013 and Crystal Reports for Visual Studio. I think it may be version 13 but not positive. The package is being built using InstallShield 2015 and I don't know which Crystal Reports files to include. The application will be deployed to Windows 7 machines, soon to be Windows 10. I hope someone can answer this question as we are stumped. Thank you!

    Hi William,

    You can't, too many parts to manually deploy the runtime.

    You can get the redist packages from this WIKI:

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

    Use one of them, only supported option.

    And use SP 19, latest update, it supports Windows 10.

    Hi,

    we are considering the purchase of CR2016.

    There is no .NET SDK package installed with CR 2016. All .NET SDK's are from the page I noted above.

    We removed the distribution of .NET and Java from the install as of CR 2008.

    First link is to install on your DEV PC, all others are for redist to users PC's.

    32 bit MSI is the easiest.
