Here's the situation...we have a windows app that's been up and running for a while. I just created a new CR report and tested it on my development machine and it works great.
In the past, whenever we make changes to the app we just recompile the app and distribute the new .exe via logon scripts to all of our staff. This seems to work well...but for some reason when we distributed the new exe with the new CR report the report wouldn't work.
Would this have something to do with just copying the .exe not having the new CR report compiled into it? When I look into the install directories of the app, none of the other, older CR reports are listed as separate .rpt files...shouldn't the new report be rolled into the .exe just like the older ones?
Do I need to create a new deployment project and roll the change out that way? Is that the only way a new CR report will successfully be distributed?
- app has pre-existing CR reports that work
- new CR report works great on development machine (regardless of logon credentials)
- CR report won't work on any other machine (even for my logon credentials)
Any help would be appreciated. I really don't want to have to create a new deployment project since the setup is fairly complex...I just want to roll out a new CR report.
