Project deployment issue (please help if you can)

Post Author: craibuc

CA Forum: .NET

I've developed an application that is intended to simply the InfoView interface for our user community. I need to be able to deploy this application and its dependencies (i.e. assemblies) in a single IIS virtual folder--the group that manges our shared IIS environment doesn't support installations to the GAC. While this application (details below) works well on my workstation, I'm encountering a number of issues when I try to deploy it in our shared environment. Is this possible? Is so, what assembilies are required? Is there any documentation on this?

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

Craig Buchanan

Application specifics:

"ASP.NET Web Application" using Visual Studio 2005 (SP1)

uses the 'Visual Studio Development Server', not IIS

BusinessObjects XI .Net SDK (11.5.3300.0)

the BO assemblies' Copy Local setting is set to true

assembilies include: CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Desktop.Report,CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework,CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore,CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.PluginManager,CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Viewing.ReportSource,CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.Controllers,CrystalDecisions.Web

the Crystal Reports Viewer components have been added to a subdirectory of the project (aspnet_client\system_web\2_0_50727\crystalreportviewers115)

    Crystal Reports Viewer uses COM Interop for part of its functionality - so you'd have to deploy using the merge modules or msi to get the required components, both .NET and COM.Sincerely,Ted Ueda

    Ted-

    I'm getting errors with the code before the viewer comes into play. Specifically, I'm getting an error that indicates that the BusinessObjects.Enterprise.SDK.dll can not be found. Is this related?

    Stupid question: will merge module deployment will require the IIS server administrator to run and installation package? I suspect that this won't be supported in our shared environment. Is there another way?

    Thanks,

    Craig

    What Ted stated is correct.

    You will need to deploy using the merge modules or server install msi (or if it is a Business Objects Enterprise app, using the enterprise cd and doing a custom server install of the .NET components).

    There is no manual deployment for .NET.
