I was working with a Ripplestone client to get the software installed on a Vista PC and had a do a few things different than if this was XP Pro or Windows Server 2003. The main differences were that Vista and Windows Server 2008 use IIS 7 and the .NET framework 1.1 is not installed by default.
I started with the following article on setting up Vista and Windows 2008 to run an ASP.NET 1.1 application.
Once I got ASP.NET 1.1 installed and configured, I need to make sure that Crystal Reports was installed correctly with the Ripplestone installer. This was just a matter of checking the permissions and testing the running of a report within Ripplestone.
All together it took an extra 30 minutes to get everything installed and configured correctly.
