Here is how I implemented offline installation of Crystal Reports in my
bootstrapper project (a copy of the Crystal Reports msi is in my project


      <!-- Define the list of chained packages. -->
      <MsiPackage Id="CrystalReports"
                  DisplayInternalUI="yes" />

      <MsiPackage Id="MyProduct"


You should be able to do the same, just replace the Crystal Report MSI with
the .NET MSI.


If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.  -
