Deploying Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2008

Deploying Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2008

I have done a search for the above and found nothing on tek-tips.
I have developed some Crystal Reports as part of an ASP.Net 3.5 web application. I use the simplest of deployment methods by just copying the files to the Production website.
The reports are falling over with the message:
Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

After extensive research on SAP and the net, I have discovered this link http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=56787567

It indicates the Crystal runtime needs to be installed on the application server, and the relevant version is CRRedist2008_x64.msi

Can anyone confirm that this is the case, and if so, what dll's etc will be installed and where, as the systems programmer is naturally very cautious about running installers on the production server.



The risk with keeping an open mind is having your brains fall out.
