Installshield will do the work perfectly.
You can even use installshield express which has less options than installshield but for VB apps does the same job, and costs less.

There are other alternatives like WISE, which also creates nice setups, and costs even less than Installshield.

Not, installshield is a nature install package generator, it's also available where VB application can be packaged using installshield. However, installshield itself got many edition (Express, Professional, Commercial, etc), so try to buy and select the most easy to use edition, my suggestion will be try the "Express" edition. The crystal report is included in Installshield (7.0 and above) as the core component to be add-in.

Just for your information, installshield is not that 'so easy', if you want to enhance the wizard generated package, you may need to explore the 'InstallScript' that available. Good luck!
