ClickOnce deployment in VS 2005 and CRXIR2

Hi All,

I have a problem attempting to ClickOnce deploy an application. I'm a first time user of any of the VS packages, so please don't assume that I know anything.

The CRXI R2 help for ClickOnce deployment says to choose Publishing prerequisites .Net Framework 2.0 and Crystal Reports for .Net Framework 2.0, but I can only see the first in the list. There is also a Crystal Reports XI Release 2 but this appears to install a full version of CRXIR2 which I don't want to do (and don't have licensing for, I assume). I can't find a download of the required name on the SAP site.

Can anyone enlighten as to the process of getting Crystal Reports for .Net Framework 2.0 onto the list of prerequisites?

Thanks,

Peter

    Thanks Jonathan,

    I followed the instuctions in the article you linked me to and went back to publish the app. The Click Once deployment section of the help file that came with the CRXIR2 download tells me that I must select Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 in the prerequisites section. However, this item does not appear in the list of potential prerequisites so I can't include it. If I continue with the Click Once deployment I get the the following error when I run the deployed app and try to preview a report...

    "An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime.

    Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.

    Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containg the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime"

    I assume this is happening because I have not included the CR redistributable in the publish prerequisites, but don't know how to do this. I assumed carrying out the instructions in the linked article would make the option magically(!) appear in the prerequisites dialog but alas, no.

    So, I have 2 questions.

    1. How do I get Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 into the deploy package?

    2. Should I give up on the ClickOnce deploy and try creating a setup project with Windows Installer? Or will this just open another can of worms?

    Any advice greatly appreciated,

    Peter
