ADO.NET + Crystal Reports app deployment

Hi!
I need to deploy .NET application (ADO.NET + Crystal Reports) in local
intranet.
All assemblies of application will be shared in the folder on the server so
all users can
execute this application on their pc from that folder. (of course I need to
apply some .NET security permissions).
So I've got two questions:
what is the best way to install crystal reports engine on users pc?
what kind of problems may occur in such enviroment ?

Thanks for any ideas!

Dmitry,

Your biggest concern is that you have the appropriate Crystal Reports
assemblies installed. Other than that, you should make sure that you have
the framework installed correctly (including any supporting libraries, like
MDAC), as well as setting the security permissions.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
There is a document in the crystal report support site that explain in
detail what you have to do to deploy an application that use Crystal Report,
the document name is crnet_deployment.pdf I can forward it to you if you
don't find it.

I think tha tyou will need to create a depployment package for this any way,
just to install the crystal assemblies in the target machine, One idea that
I can think of is try to detect from your application if the running machine
had run before the deployment, if not execute it.
This allow you to install it "on demand"
Hope this help,

Hi,

Some time ago I had more or less the same problem in my head. As far as I
know the there are CR libraries that are not installed with the .NET
framework on a computer. So trying to run an application that uses CR,
developed in VS.NET, on a computer that never had VS.NET installed but only
the framework will not work. The sollution was to installl VS.NET on that
computer. Maybe I did something wrong, but the guys at crystal decisions
took care not to make any documentation on CR easy. Also, if someone knows a
way to deploy a CR enabled application in a VS.NET free environment....I
would appreciate the input.
Dmitry, I don't know if this helps you but I hope that, at least, it
shades some light on the CR hell

Bye
