I'm trying to get an old .NET 2.0 ASP.NET app installed on a new web server. Back when we created the deployment of this app to the web servers, we needed Crystal, and so we used the Crystal Merge Module in VS 2005. Then we created a .MSI to install the
ASP.NET app, with Crystal on our Windows 2003 servers. This has worked fine, for installing those apps on our Windows 2003 R2 Server.
Now I'm trying to get these 2 apps installed on a new Windows 2008 R2 Web Server, but running the .MSI immediately fails, without getting anywhere. I've found a way to get a verbose log of what's going on, and I've found an error of it's not being able
to find the MSOLAP.DLL on the server. Nowhere in the code do we use OLAP from anyone, including Microsoft. But we do use Crystal Reports 11 Release 2, so I suspect that it was included when we made the .MSI file to install the web site on the old web server.
Now, I'm trying to find a way to get rid of that dependence on MSOLAP from the Crystal in this app, in VS 2005. Is that possible? And if so, how do I do that?
