Crystal Reports Distribution

I have a couple of Visual Basic 6 projects, one of which uses CRViewer and v 9 reports (which I did not add) and another has CRViewer and v XI reports (which I did add).  The first one works, and it works using Inno Setup Compiler to install a few dlls.  The same approach does not work for the second one (I get the famous "Run-time error '20728'") though it works fine on my machine.

I've never created an MSI, and when I use MakeMsi to include the CR merge modules it gives me a "Rex code called Error()" message which -- according to their support group (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/makemsi/message/1745) -- means I have to "use Orca to debug".

All this seems like a lot of work if it works in another project.  I don't have CR v 9, but I have v 10.  Doesn't v 10 require merge modules?  Should v 9?  Why do I need merge modules?  All the machines mentioned are Windows XP.  I think I just need to be pointed in the right direction.

Thanks in advance

YOu have an app using CR9 reports and it works.

You have an app with CR XI (11) reports and can't build the install package.

Why do you have CR XI reports if you don't own CR XI?

I own CR XI.  It's CR 9 I don't own.  Someone had it before I joined the company but no one can find it now.
