    Environment

    • SAP Crystal Reports 2011
    • SAP Crystal Reports 2013
    • SAP Crystal Reports 2016

    Reproducing the Issue

    1. Start installing SAP Crystal Reports 2011 SP06
    2. It stops at 'Caching Deployment Units' step, and output the error:

      'Failed to update cache for execution. Program will exit'

    Cause

    • Caching blocked by an Anti-Virus software scan.

    Resolution

    • To successfully install Crystal Reports, perform one of the following:
      • Disable the AntiVirus software; or
      • Manually copy the files Crystal Reports uses for the installation.
      • To Manually copy the files Crystal Reports uses for the installation:
        1. Note the Deployment Unit file name from the screenshot above - "tp.microsoft.wse.runtime-3.0-core-32, 14.0.0.760"
        2. Locate the folder with the same name in Crystal Reports installation package - <CR Installation Folder>\DATA_UNITS\CrystalReports\dunit\tp.microso ft.wse.runtime-3.0-core-32\
        3. Copy the folder to the folowing destination - <InstallDir>/InstallData/InstallCache/tp.microsoft.wse.runtime-3.0-core-32/14.0.0.760/
          Where "/14.0.0.760/" are manually created subdirectories and the name of the subdirectory matches the file version number and taken from the error screenshot.

          Note: For Crystal Reports 2013 the installation may fail on the following Deployment Unit:

          shared.tp.aurora.microsoft.vcredist7-4.0-core-32,14.1.0.896

          This is Microsoft C++ Visual redistributable package and the Deployment Unit has installer within it. Additional step is required. After copying the Deployment Unit, double click on RequiredRuntimes.msi file at the following location:

          C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\InstallData\InstallCache\shared.tp.aurora.microsoft.vcredist7-4.0-core-32\14.1.0.896

        4. Repeat the installation.

          It may fail on another Deployment Unit, just repeat the steps above for each failed Deployment Unit.
