    I use the next method:
    Creating a Visual Basic Installer Package
    This method uses the Visual Basic (VB) Installer Package Wizard to deploy a RDC application.

    Dependency files for Craxdrt.dll
    Before using the VB Installer Package Wizard, some changes are required for Craxdrt.dep and Craxddrt.dep (the dependency files for Craxddrt.dll).

    Modifying Craxdrt.dep and Craxddrt.dep
    In order for Craxdrt.dep and Craxddrt.dep to successfully work with the VB Installer Package Wizard, modify Craxdrt.dep and Craxddrt.dep using the following steps:
    1. Open Craxdrt.dep in Notepad. Craxdrt.dep is installed by default to: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin

    2. Select Replace from the Edit menu.

    3. In the Find What text box type: “\Program Files”

    4. In the Replace With text box type: “$(ProgramFiles)”

    5. Select Replace All and then save this file.

    6. Place a semi-colon in front of the following lines (to comment them out) in Craxdrt.dep:

    Uses1=$(ProgramFiles)\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin\Unicows.dll [unicows.dll]
    Dest=$(CommonFiles)\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin
    Uses1=

    7. Search for the string ‘Uses31’. Below this line, add the following line: Uses32=$(System32)\cxlibw-1-6.dll

    8. Repeat steps 1 to 7 but with Craxddrt.dep. Craxddrt.dep is installed by default to the following folder:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin
    Place a semi-colon in front of the following line (to comment it out) in Craxddrt.dep:

    Uses11=C:$(ProgramFiles)\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin\sscrc.dll

    Alerts
    The VB Installer Package Wizard will look for every DLL listed in the dependency files (Craxdrt.dep and Craxddrt.dep) and attempt to add them to your package.
    The VB Installer Package Wizard may issue an alert for each of the following files, as they may not be on your computer.
    U2dapp.dll
    U2dpost.dll
    Unicows.dll
    U2dapp.dll and
    U2dpost.dll
    These Crystal Reports DLLs handle the exporting destination to the Application and Exchange Folders.
    Alerts for these files may appear in the VB Installer Package Wizard as these files are listed in the Craxdrt.dep file and may not be on your computer.
    You can either choose to comment out these DLLs from Craxdrt.dep or install these DLLs to your computer.
    If you wish to comment out the DLLs follow these steps:
    1. Open Craxdrt.dep in Notepad. Craxdrt.dep is installed to the following folder by default: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin
    2. Place a semi-colon in front of the following lines: Uses20=$(ProgramFiles)\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin\u2dpost.dll
    Uses21=$(Program Files)\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin\u2dapp.dll
    3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for Craxddrt.dep file.
    Craxddrt.dep is installed by default to the following folder:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin
