R1/R2 Merge Modules Side-by-Side
Hello. I am in the process of updating our VB6-based product from using and distributing CR XI R1 merge modules to R2 merge modules so that it will run on computers running Windows Vista.
Does anyone know of any side-by-side installation issues with R1 and R2? It is likely that some users will have the CR XI R1 designer installed on the same machine that we will install our product -- using InstallShield to push out the R2 merge modules. We hope that installing our product with R2 merge modules will not affect the R1 design-time environment -- is this correct?
Crystal Reports R1 and R2 were designed to install side-by-side, so you should have no problems with the situation you described.
Do make sure that you are using the latest version of our merge modules, as R1 was not supported on Vista until Service Pack 4.
