    Hi aspfun,

    If you want to deploy ASP.NET website, you could use Web Deployment project or precompile it and then deploy it on the server. Or we can copy the whole website files to server, or we can create Web Setup project for it that allows user to install with wizard.

    And id you want to deploy the website with Crystal Reports, we can add the Crystal Reports merge modules to web deployment project, or install the run time redistributable pack on the server.

    Why you don't use Visual Studio to publish your app on your IIS server  ?

    The link is for vs2010 only.

    In vs2012, there is no more setup template.

    Can someone help me, or give a link for third party installer software?

    Hi aspfun,

    As my previous post provided, you could add the Crystal Reports merge modules to web deployment project, or install the run time redistributable pack on the server.
