Application Deployment CR XI R2 SP2 with Visual Studio 2005 SP1


Post Author: kapaul1

CA Forum: Deployment

Hello !

We are programming windows applications, which are placed on a server. The clients are calling the exe-files from the server and they should be able to call some Crystal Reports by the applications.

Until recently I only had Visual Studio 2005 SP1. I made a Deployment project and enabled at requisites Crystal Reports.

The Deplyoment-Project installed at the clients and everything was ok.

Lately I bought Crystal Reports XI R2 Developer and installed it on my machine. I updated my programs and the rpt-files were changed from version 10.2 to 11.5.

But now I need new Crystal Reports runtime files.

When I create a new Deployment project I can enable "Crystal Reports XI" and install it at the clients (CrystalRedist115_x86.msi)

Everything is working fine,but:

1) At the client its shown as Crystal Reports Sever with a size about 240 MB

2) Without CR XI R2 (only VS 2005) it was shown as "Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 (x86) with 35 MB

Why this big difference (over 200 MB)

I think this can´t be ok ?

240 MB only to call a report ???
