I am trying to package up Crystal Reports 8 using the .msi.

My command line looks something like this: msiexec /i \\server\sci.msi /qb PIDKEY=XX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXXX

I am also editing the registry in the script to update these keys:

HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Serial=XXXXXXXXXX
HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Registration\UserProfile\Company=XXX
HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Registration\UserProfile\Country=XXX
HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Registration\UserProfile\Email=XXX
HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Registration\UserProfile\FirstName=XXX
HKLM\Software\Seagate Software\Registration\UserProfile\LastName=XXX

The install complete successfully but I get this message when I try open Crystal:

"We hope you enjoyed your evaluation copy of Seagate Crystal Reports, which how now expired"

Click OK and the application closes

Our license key and registration # is valid. Is there another registry key I need to modify to make this message go away?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I'm not really sure if this is it, but I included a lot more registry entries in my script which works fine. I think that the registry keys that may do the trick are HKLM\SOFTWARE\Seagate Software\Registration\SurveyResults and all its values.
