I want to make an installer that installs just a crystal report and thats it no code at all. This is easy to do if I want to only install the crystal report at only one location. However I  want the installer to install the crystal report to 2 locations on the same computer. How would I do that. This is visual basic 2005.

What do you mean just a crystal report?

Are you trying to put an RPT file on the machine?

Yes in two different locations. Infact that is all the installer is going to do.

Do you have an application that uses the reports?

It should be as simple as just copying the report file to the locations you want.  A report file doesn't need to be installed
