I have a package deployment that has Crystal Reports merge modules. This MM is pretty big (75 Mb) and some of the target pcs do not require crystal reports. Can I conditionally install merge modules

Re: ClickOnce and Setup & Deployment Projects Conditionally Deploy Merge Modules


Not really. Once the merge modules are built into your MSI file they lose their identity. Perhaps you could have a setup project with your product, and then build another that contains the Crystal merge modules, and get them installed if they need to. However I don't know if some of the Crystal merge modules need to be installed into your app folder - if so, that's an issue.
