I developed a VB.NET 2003 application that uses Crystal Report (which is installed with Visual Studio 2003). What are the steps and files needed to deploy my application to other computer that has only Windows XP and dotNet Framework 1.1 SP1 installed?

You'll need to do the following.

1) In your project add a Setup and Deployment Package, with this follow the instructions in adding the right files from msdn.microsoft.com its fairly simple and not hard to do.
2) Make sure you right mouse button on the setup and deployment package and go add -> merge modules when you do this you find it opens up with a bunch of files make sure you add all of these


3) Go to the Help -> About Microsoft Development and grab copy the serial number for Crystal .Net, then select the Crystal_regwiz2003.msm and select the merge module properties and add the key into the License Key

4) Build both projects and there you have it.
