I'm creating my first Installation with InstallShield. I presumed there was a difference between warnings an errors. I resolved the errors. The application builds but the install fails. I have the below warnings. My guess is that the below issues are causing the errors on my install. The below errors are repeated 4 times

ISDEV : warning -6248: Could not find dependent file crpe32.dll, or one of its dependencies of component XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
ISDEV : warning -6248: Could not find dependent file libc.dll, or one of its dependencies of component XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
ISDEV : warning -6248: Could not find dependent file u2dmapi.dll, or one of its dependencies of component XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
ISDEV : warning -6248: Could not find dependent file u2dpost.dll, or one of its dependencies of component XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I also added the .NET framework full but I'm still receiving this warning.
ISDEV : warning -6245: One or more of the project's components contain .NET properties that require the .NET Framework. It is recommended that the release include the .NET Framework.

Any ideas?

Your project is using additional assemblies, looks like Crystal Reports. Those assemblies either have to be included with the deployment, or they have to be already present on the target computer in GAC.

You probably can include merge module of Crystal Reports.

It seems that the warnings were not stopping me.  I selected add Adobe and that was what was causing my issue.  

When you select to Add Adobe or other products doesn't InstallShield install it for you?

If by "add Adobe" you mean adding a prerequisite, Installshield adds to the installation a special preconfigured piece that will install another product, if it's not yet installed.

It will install it on the computer where that installation will run, not on the computer where you create the installation.

Yes, the prerequisite that you check in InstallShield.  I selected Adobe 10.  Seems that it was causing an issue with my install so I deselected it and the error is not occurring now.  

Any idea why?
