Here is the situation:
- We're developing windows forms applications in VS.NET 2005 Final
- We have reports written in Crystal Reports XI Release 2
- We need to deploy the application to our clients

Here's the problem. When I was working in VS.NET 2005 Beta 2 & Crystal XI Release 1, I had to create a VS.NET deployment project to get a Crystal Reports runtime redist file that I could run on the clients' machines. In order to do this, I remember reading about having to open the Crystal merge modules using Orca, and then put in the keycode (our Crystal XI serial number).

Anyway, I'm attempting to build a deployment project in VS.NET 2005 Final that includes the merge modules that were installed with Crystal XI Release 2, but I keep getting a compile error that states that Keycode cannot be null or blank.

So, here's my question: What is the easiest way to accomplish this? If I do need to add the keycode in the merge modules using Orca, which merge modules, and what fields?
