Now I am trying to Build a package with Visual Studio Installer 1.1 but it dont want to Complete, it looks like it cant find some of the crystal files. But if I search for those files myself I find them in the location where they are supposed to be.

If you're intending to create an MSI, you really need to deploy the appropriate Crystal Reports run time files using a Merge Module rather than attempting to 'pick and choose' the appropriate DLLs from your development system - the merge module contains all the appropriate files and, importantly, the logic to correctly install the CR run-time on the target machine(s)

Have a look at http://support.businessobjects.com/fix/merge_modules.asp which allows you to download the appropriate module (please ensure you read the deployment guide PDFs carefully also)

Hope that helps,
