Merge Modules Don't Work


I downloaded the CRforVS_mergemodules_13_0_1 zip file, extracted everything.

In Visual Studio 2010, I right-clicked my Setup project, clicked Add, clicked Merge Module. Then I selected all of the msm files that were extracted in the first step above.

The project compiled fine, and my MSI file grew to 79,164 KB (up from about 1/2 MB), but when I installed it on another machine, the Crystal Reports runtime didn't install.

Did I do something wrong?

    Search first, lots of info on using Merge Modules. They don't include any Microsoft dependencies so you have to add all of those yourself.

    Try using the MSI redist, everything should be included within.

    Thank you
