What do we need, to install CR for VS 2010?

We've got some new developer machines, which we're configuring now. We use Visual Studio 2010 Premium, and need to use Crystal Reports for VS 2010. My colleague has done a search, from within VS 2010 on her new machine, which directed her to a page on the SAP website, with several options for downloading such as: Crystal Reports for VS 2010 32-bit, Crystal Reports for VS 2010 64-bit, Crystal Reports for VS 2010 ClickOnce 32-bit, Crystal Reports for VS 2010 ClieckOnce 64-bit, and other things like Crystal Reports for VS 2010 SP4, etc. We're confused with all of the possible options and aren't sure which we'll need. We will be using ClickOnce, and we do have clients which are both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows (XP and Win7). I suppose we may also do installations using something other than ClickOnce.

So, bottom line, which download(s) do we get?

    Hello Rod:

    I wrote the following Doc re. just this scenario:

    To install CRVS2010 you need the "Install Executable" referenced in the above doc. If you will be creating web apps, don't use Service Pack 4, stock with Service Pack 3 (SP4 has web viewer issues). At the end of the install, you will get asked if you want to install the 64 bit files as well (if you're on a 64 bit OS). Other than that, the rest of the files are used for CR runtime distribution (MSM, MSI, ClickOnce).

    Hope this helps a bit,

    • Depends, really...

      There are no 64 bit MSMs (merge modules).

      If you are intend to use MSI, then for 32 bit deployment make sure that he application targets X86 platform and use 32 bit MSI on the server.

      And for 64 bit deployment target the app to X 64 and use 64 bit MSI.

      Search the forums, a lot of info is available.
