Can anyone tell me which merge module I should download to be able to deploy my project which uses a TCrystalActiveXReportViewer control?

I believe that two of the options which exist are a) .NET merge module b) RDC merge module. My project only uses the activex control to view reports.

Thanks in advance,

    As regards using the "RDC" merge module, does each client machine need a license or is it free to distribute?

    Crystal Reports includes more than 750 royalty-free runtime APIs that you can integrate into your
    thick-client Windows applications to enable a variety of capabilities including report viewing,
    printing, and exporting. From a licensing perspective, you may use these APIs within your
    applications for internal corporate deployment and/or redistribution to third parties without
    additional licensing requirements.
