Hello,

I am having trouble publishing a CrystalReports project.  And on searching my error online, I saw someone put this solution.  But I don't see anywhere in VS where the application folder is.  Do they mean in VS, or do they mean literally the folder in the published project?

Based on my consulting, .rpt file won't be automatically add to the msi package. You need to add them to the setup project manually. In the "Application Folder" window, right click the blank area to "Add" -> "File...". Select all the files you want to add. Then build the project.

If you have any problem with it, please feel free to tell me.

I'm using VS2010.  

PagodNaUtak - I don't see that setup icon in my project.  I previously right clicked the solution and clicked publish to setup my program.  How do I get that icon in my project?

There many deployment procedure in Visual Studio and the one you are using is the clickonce deployment, to include the crystal report in your installation just right click the crystal report file, then click properties. On the properties toolbar select "Build Action" then choose Content. Then try to publish again. Check if the reports is included.
