Help guys,

first of all, thanx revizor for you reply. I was on holiday so i could not get by my e-mail.

The problem i have is crystal reports 11 professional.
What did i do:

I have made the following keys/changes in the mst file

* Property "PIDKEY" with the value *****************
* Property "Productlanguage" changed to 1043 (otherwse the msi needs the setup.exe)
* Propertie "CheckForUpdates" changed to 0 (otherwise the msi askes for webupdates)

Everything looks allright but when i take look at the hdd the crystal reports dir contains only 50 MB. The windows installer logging looks allright with me. The file is to big so i post it in a seperate thread.

When logging in as an administrator and dubbleclicking the shortcut the msi is installed properly. The error i get in the eventvwr is:

Detection of product '{7505DE9C-4E85-4636-82F0-50F38077B900}', feature 'crw' failed during request for component '{E20AD28E-5190-43BE-8897-F35DF7DF1697}'

What am i doing wrong. Is there any one that can send me a good mst file without the PIDKEY.

thanx in advance

I don't know anything about Crystal Reports so I can't comment on the specific product installation.. but why don't you start by doing a search in your component table for {E20AD28E-5190-43BE-8897-F35DF7DF1697}?

Are those property changes the only thing in your MST? If so, there's something seriously wrong with your MST and you should start from scratch and build a new one. Or are you editing the MST that has the product language info?

How about some more info on what you're trying to do...
