Installation package ASP.NET with Crystal Reports version 13
Posted on 2016-10-05
I developed a web application using VB.NET 2010 that uses the Crystal Reports version 13.
When I created the setup project using the Visual Studio Installer, I checked the "SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine for .NET Framework" with "Download prerequisites from the same location as my application" option checked too, in the window prerequisites. Therefore, is included in the installation package the .MSI file from Crystal Reports to the reports to be shown.
My problem is that some of our customers do not allow to run an installation package on the server, but only the files that must be copied to the IIS application folder.
So, is there any way to create an installation package that has only files that should be copied, without need to add .MSI installation files?
