Crystal Reports Runtime (CRRedist2008_x86) Deployment Through .net Code?
Posted on 2010-04-07
I have an application that can run an crystal report off a .net toolbar. However in order to get reports to run off other machines I need to install the CRRedist2008_x86 file on that said machine.
Is there an effective way to add a "check" into my code an run this file if CRRedist2008_x86 is not already installed?
My first idea would be to look for a possible registry key, If regKey Is Nothing Then execute file, however I cannot seem to find a key related to it.
Anyone have any possible tips? Keep in mind this will not be a published application, it will be run off the bin application so updating is simpler.
