I am new to Crystal reports and I am investigating a Visual Studio 2008 .NET C# solution for my WPF application. I would like to create a dll that holds all of the Crystal rpts and schema and simply invoke a function calling a specific report with the data serialized to xml string. The output should be a PDF file. I would like to have this library be referenced in any of my applications to allow my application to call by initializing and calling the functuon passing in these two parameters. I also do not want to include anything in the GAC because I simply want no deployment issues using OneClick.
I would appreciate it any adivce in this area.
