Merge Module required for TCrystalActiveXReportViewer deployment

Hi,

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,
Sinead

Activex ?

So you need the "RDC" one.

The onely 2 you should need for CR XI are:
CrystalReports11_RDC_Reportengine.msm
CrystalReports11_RDC_Runtime.msm

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

That's a other question but theres the link:

ant the interessing part:

Integrating Reports into Thick-Client Windows Applications
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.
