Deployment of Crystal Server 2011 Client Components

I have developed a .NET-Application using components of "Crystal Server 2011 SDK". To deploy this application I have to deploy this package. The installation of "Crystal Server 2011 SDK" at the target computer takes more than 1 GB.

But my apllication uses only the two DLL's

CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore, Version=14.0.2000.0

CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.Framework, Version=14.0.2000.0

Including these two DLL's into an Setup Project seems not to be sufficient.

Which components must be included in an Setup-Project to deploy these two DLL's together with all dependent components?

Or is there an alternative way for deployment, e. g. "small" MergeModules?

Thanks in advance!

    You'll need a heck of a lot more than just two assemblies 😊

    In the same place where you found the Crystal Server 2011 download, you will find SBOP BI PLATFORM .NET SDK RUNTIME 4.0 SP2 WINDOWS (32B) and SBOP BI PLATFORM .NET SDK RUNTIME 4.0 SP2 WINDOWS (64B). These are the MSI runtime files for Crystal Server 2011 that will have to be installed on the deployed server.

    PS. For those hitting on this thread. Crystal Server 2011 is only available to Enterprise customers. E.g.; it is not a free download like [CRVS2010|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/support?rid=/webcontent/uuid/d01fdad8-44e5-2d10-61ad-9d2d4158f3a8] [original link is broken];

    I found the package 51041052_1_Crystal 2011 .NET SDK 32.ZIP in the download area of the trial version of "Crystal Server 2011". That seems to be the right package. But after installation it takes more than 1.3 GB.

    By now I observed, that the destination folder of the installation contains an folder "InstallData" which takes 600 MB. This folder is completely useless during runtime.

    So far I didn't found the package SBOP BI PLATFORM .NET SDK RUNTIME 4.0 SP2 WINDOWS (32B). Could you provide a link to this packge? I have an S-User to access the SAP support portal.

    Thank you very much!

    The package you have shown me (named SBOP BI PLATFORM .NET SDK RUNTIME 4.0) is exactly the same package that I have downloaded (named 51041052_1_Crystal 2011 .NET SDK 32.ZIP) together with the trial version of Crystal Server 2011.

    It seems that there is no "smaller" package for distribution of the client components of Crystal Server 2011.

    Thank you very much! again!
