Crystal Reports .NET 2.0 Redistributable Installer

Crystal Reports .NET 2.0 Redistributable InstallerBy default, .NET framework redistributable does not include Crystal Reports module. So more often, programmers encounters errors on deployment when printing reports created from Visual Studio Crystal Report. Deployment of .NET applications should be easy, you just need to have a .NET framework installer and your application's executable plus database then it should good to go. But this only applies if you have no reports written on crystal report. If you did, you have to include the "CrystalReportsRedist2005_x86.msm" merge module on your application's installer.

To make everybody's life easier, I uploaded my Crystal Reports .NET 2.0 Redistributable Installer on my file hosting server. To deploy it, just extract the compressed file and run the setup.exe.

The installer is available for download at mediafire file server

If you want to create your own installer, the merge modules are available for download on the following location.
