  Items 3, 5 and 7 require that the Crystal Reports Runtime be installed on the same machine.

  If you encounter any problems installing the Crystal Reports Runtime Engine, Save (instead of Run) to your machine and install the MSI file locally.

The recommended standard installation is the 32/64-bit version (Steps 1 through 8 below) on the application server, shared drive, or user machine along with the appropriate 32- or 64-bit Prerequisites (Step 0 above) on the user's machine.
If you install on a machine with Windows 64-bit that has an installation of 32-bit Microsoft Office version 2010 or older, you may need to install the "32-bit Only" version below.
 
The five "administrative" application installations (Steps 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6) now default to a new/different folder to separate them from the Data Entry and Analysis & Reporting “user” applications. If updating from a prior working install, just copy the GADSNG.XML file from the GADSOS folder to the GADSOSAdmin folder. Also edit your admin application shortcuts to point to the GADSOSAdmin folder; instead of the GADSOS folder, and you are all set.
