SAP Crystal reports 2011, IIS 7.5

Hi,
We need a report to be shown in client browser after clicking on a web page  link.
We have SAP Crystal reports 2011inslattled on developer machine.
I don't believe I need to install all package on server. My guess is that some engine (runtime) needs to be installed.
?
It is IIS 7.5 on Server 2008 R2 (64 bit).
Web application is based on .Net4
Thank you.

You need to install the CR2011 runtimes.
There is no SDK or runtimes for CR2011.  CR2011 is intended to be used with Crystal Server or BO Enterprise.

You can try using the CR2008 runtimes

Crystal wants you to use the CR4VS2010 - Crystal Reports for VS2010

There is a similar download for VS2012

Here is a good walk-through on how to publish Crystal Reports

http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-23051


This should be a good starting point for you

becraig - your link is for loading reorts to Crystal Server.  There is no indication they have Crystal Server but rather they have their own application that is intended to run the reports.

Also, FYI, SAP Crystal Server 2011 doesn't support IIS as a web server, unless it's specifically for Sharepoint integration. It uses Java webservers (Tomcat, by default).

Is it enough to install Redist Installation (64 bit)?

Also reading the link you provided:

It depends on how you are deploying your application.  If you are creating a setup package for your project, then you can use the merge modules to embed within with your own setup.  If you are deploying using the Visual Studio ClickOnce deployment option, then you can follow the Visual Studio workflow to configure your ClickOnce deployment with the CR prerequisites; you would not need to download the ClickOnce download .zip in this case.

The other redist packages provide a .MSI package that you can execute separately on a client or server machine
.

Does it mean that our programmer can just create a setup package to run on Web server and nothing else needs to be installed?
Thank you.

They can create a setup package but it must include the Crystal files probably from the merge modules.  You then just need to install that package since it includes the runtimes
