Merge module question support pack 19


I'm using Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2015 Support Pack 19.

I'm trying to target a 64 bit OS with my windows installer setup project. I'm using the 32 bit merge module in support pack 19. I'm not sure what the merge module is used for the setup project builds successfully and includes the 32 bit merge module. Would this be defeating the purpose of targeting a 64 bit OS? Is their a 64 bit version of the merge module?

Why typically is the merge module needed in the deployment of the project?

Any information you could provide regarding this would be helpful.

Thank you in advance,

Michael Helduser

    Hi Michael,

    Try searching first, lots of info on using Merge Modules.

    There are only 32 bit merge modules since it's old technology we never created one for 64 bit deployments.

    Our runtime is platform specific to your app and not the OS, so set your project for x86 or x64, not AnyCPU. then the MSIExec determines what is going to be installed.

    Using the MSI is the easiest to use.
