I have a Windows Forms project that I created in VS2005 that takes advantage of the built in Crystal Reports.  I need to make sure that when my app is installed that I check to make sure the CR Redist is installed first.  Right now I have done this by Right-Clicking my Setup Project and going to Properties, and then clicking on Prerequisites.  A window opens (see picture) and the box at the top is check along with Crystal Reports for .Net 2.0.  I also chose "Download from the same location as my app."

Is this correct?  I can't really check because the server that I have access too already has the CR Redist installed and I don't want to mess with it.

When you choose"Download prerequisites from the same location as my application", installer will look for CR msi in the folder where your application set up is available. The settings that you have given is correct.

I don't notice it saying that it is checking for it, but it might be so fast I don't see it...Thanks.
