I have an MSI that includes the Crystal Reports merge module
(CR115_NET_2005). When my users install it on a machine that has a different
vendor's software on it that also includes a (previous, I believe) version
of crystal, everything is fine. However when they uninstall our software, it
seems to uninstall crystal for their other applications as well. I've looked
at the settings for the MSM in my setup package, but I don't see any obvious
ones that might alleviate this. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
