I'm particularly fond of Inno Setup, which is a free installer with a simple, intuitive interface used by many different commercial and open-source applications. It's easy to use to install VB 6 applications, as well. See this knowledge base article for a listing of the DLLs you need to include as part of the VB runtime, and specific instructions on how to modify the installer script accordingly.
Hi I have a question. I am trying to install crystal reports run time .msi file. How ever it installs by default in c drive I have already installed crystal reports designer and server in d drive . Is it possible to install the crystal report runtime in the location in d drive rather than installing it by default in c drive programa files SAPBUSINESSOBJECTS folder ?
helped I have installed the last version of crystal report when I want to create a report viewer in the form issue tells me that crystaldecisions.shared version=13.0.2.000000 I have the latest framework installed and crystal runtime the same version of crystal report I have tried all thing but nothing solved thanks
I encountered that error also when i was new in crystal report and i forgot to say that i am using 8.5 version of crystal. That code works fine for me even moving my project into another drive and even installing it on another machine without vb6 and crystal report installed. When compilling project, try to include all runtime files for crystal...Now try to design a report wothout using the DAO provider. Try to use the find database file when looking for ur database then try my code above. if error still persist, please post ur code and lets try to check it out...
Maybe sometimes you need to include the crystal reports runtime in your application project. In that case, go to Official site to download Crystal reports wiki page and download MSM File. You can then learn to include MSM file from the following link Using Crystal Reports Merge Modules MSM to create a Setup project
We have a classic ASP solution where we are using RDC to show "crystal report" reports on the net. This has been working for year now without any problems! The webservers have been mostly windows Server 2003, but also recently Windows Server 2008.

In Visual Studio 2019 and later, merge modules for Visual C++ Redistributable files are deprecated. We don't recommend you use them for application deployment. Redistributables installed using Merge modules can't be updated by Windows Update because the detection mechanism depends on knowing details of the installing package. The Visual C++ Redistributable packages are known for each release, but packages that use MSMs are user generated. Microsoft can't know the details of user-generated packages. Instead, we recommend you use central deployment of the Visual C++ Redistributable package. Central deployment installs the Redistributable files in the Windows %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\ folder for use by all applications and users. Central deployment by a Redistributable package makes it possible for Microsoft to service runtime library files independently. And, an uninstall of your app can't break other applications that also use central deployment. When you use a Redistributable package for central deployment, you aren't responsible for tracking and updating the runtime libraries as part of your application maintenance: The Microsoft Update service updates these libraries for you. Otherwise, an update to the runtime library files requires you to update and redeploy your .msi installer. Your app could be vulnerable to bugs or security issues until you do.
The installation service reports an error if you attempt central deployment of older merge modules over newer existing libraries. You should write your installer setup to handle this failure gracefully and not display an error message. Your code can still deploy and run successfully despite this failure. For more information, see C++ binary compatibility between Visual Studio versions.
This add-on allows you to add the Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5 SP2 runtime installers to your own installer, complete with the correct actions to run these installers. Both the x86 and x64 installers are included as per Microsoft specifications.
Microsoft Web Services 3.0 runtime libraries for .Net. This replaces the Microsoft WSE 3.0 Runtime.msi installer provided by Microsoft and installs the same items as a much more compact distribution (app. 250 KB).
Microsoft Web Services 2.0 SP3 runtime libraries for .Net. This replaces the Microsoft WSE 2.0 SP3 Runtime.msi installer provided by Microsoft and installs the same items as a much more compact distribution (app. 250 KB).
The add-on installs a project item called Install WSE 2.0 SP3 that you can import into any InstallMate 9.x project in order to include Web Services 2.0 SP3 runtime support in your installer.

I found this info on Crystal site: Runtime File Requirements for the Report Designer Component version 8.5 The information in the article refers to: Report Designer Component 8.5 Applies to: Reported version only Distribution Runtime File Requirements Synopsis What runtime files do you need to distribute with your application when using the Report Designer Component (RDC) version 8.5 as the reporting development tool? Solution The runtime files you require to distribute an application developed using the Report Designer Component (RDC) are listed below. These files are installed to the \Windows\System (Microsoft Windows 9x) folder by default, however you can also install them to the application folder. The Crystal Reports runtime files required for distribution with your application are dependent on the following: - The method used to access the Crystal Report Engine. - The data source your reports use. - The exporting options you want available to end-users. - Any additional components you may be using such as charts, maps, additional formula language functions, and so on. When using the RDC version 8.5 there are four main components: - Craxdrt.dll - The Crystal Reports 8.5 ActiveX Designer Runtime DLL. This DLL is the reporting engine and it exposes the Object Model Hierarchy. Distribute this DLL with all applications using the RDC. - CRViewer.dll - The Crystal Reports View Control. Use this component to preview your report. If you are not previewing the report, then it is not necessary to distribute this DLL. - CRDesignerCtrl.dll - Embeddable Crystal Reports 8.5 Designer Control. This DLL is new to Crystal Reports 8.5. This DLL exposes report creation and designer capabilities in your application and allows you to create a report at runtime using an ActiveX designer. - Craxddrt.dll - Crystal Reports 8.5 ActiveX Designer Design and Runtime DLL. This DLL is new to Crystal Reports 8.5. This DLL is the engine used to design and format reports at design time, as well as to access and process reports at runtime. Not all of these DLLs need to be distributed with your application. Only distribute these DLLs if you use them in your application. For example, if you do not use the Embeddable Designer Control, then you would not distribute CRDesignerCtrl.dll and Craxddrt.dll. For a listing of the dependency files for the Report Designer Component and the Embeddable Crystal Reports Designer Control, refer to 'Runtime.hlp' and look under 'Method Used to Access the Crystal Report Engine'. ==================== NOTE: In addition to the dependency files listed in 'Runtime.hlp', the four main components of the RDC also require these dependency files: Craxdrt.dll: Mfc42.dll, Msvcrt.dll, Msvcp60.dll, Comdlg32.dll, Comctl32.dll CRViewer.dll: Comctl32.dll CRDesignerCtrl.dll: Msvcrt.dll, Comctl32.dll Craxddrt.dll: Mfc42.dll, Msvcrt.dll, Msvcp60.dll, Comctl32.dll, Comdlg32.dll, Msvcirt.dll ==================== ==================== NOTE: A common runtime error when installing an RDC application is error 1904, such as this exact error message: Error 1904. Module C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\Report Designer Component\Craxdrt.dll failed to register. HRESULT -2147024894. Contact your support personnel. For more information on resolving a 1904 error message, refer to these knowledge base articles: C2009804 C2007010 C2007140 C2009848 ==================== ACTIVE DATA If your reports use Active Data (ADO, CDO, DAO, RDO, etc) you need to distribute the Active Data driver, P2smon.dll (plus its dependencies). P2smon.dll is dependent upon the following files: Msvcirt.dll Msvcp60.dll Msvcrt.dll DATABASE DLLs If the reports are not using Active Data and are using connections (native, ODBC, or OLE DB) to physical databases (such as Microsoft Access or SQL Server), refer to 'Runtime.hlp' and look under 'Data Access' for more information. EXPORTING DLLs Distribute these DLLs if your application has exporting functionality. Only those DLLs distributed will be valid options for exporting. For example, if only U2ddisk.dll and U2fcr.dll are distributed, then you can only export a report to a file disk in a Crystal Report format. Refer to 'Runtime.hlp' and look under 'Exporting' for more information. USER FUNCTION LIBRARIES (UFL) If your report uses a User Defined Functions (a function listed in the Formula Editor's Additional Functions section), then the associated U2xxxxx.dll (UFL) file must be included in the distribution. If the function is one of the Crystal Reports sample User Defined Functions, include the Uflsampl1.dll file. Refer to 'Runtime.hlp' and look under 'Additional Components' then 'User Function Libraries' for more information. ==================== NOTE: Other DLLs that a Crystal report may use and need to be distributed are: ODBC files, RDO/DAO/CDO files, OLE DB core & providers, SQL Server/Oracle clients, Access (DAO/JET) files/engines, etc. For further information about runtime file requirements for the RDC go to *-*-*.com/ ==================== -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Category: Development Subject: Report Designer Component (RDC) Topic: Distribution/Runtime Keywords: CRYSTALRUNTIME 8.5 RDC DEPENDENCY EMBEDDABLE CRYSTAL -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Status: Verified Product: Crystal Reports Developer Reported Version: 188.8.131.52 Crystal Reports Developer Applies to: Reported version only Bit Version: 32 Bit I included all the files listed above and created Setup.EXE for my simplest VB app (1 form with CRViewer Control.
