Can't Find 'Deployment Project' in Visual Studio 2005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Delphi Project using Crystal X1 that I want to deploy.
    Apparently, Crystal XI requires the use of Merge Modules in deployment.

    I have searched the forums and found a lot of information and some good tutorials on creating a Deployment Project using Visual Studio 2005.

    However, my problem is that all the information says to go to File/New/Other Projects and choose 'Setup and Deployment'
    and this option does not come up for me. The only option I get under other Other Projects is 'Visual Studio Solutions'.

    I am not a Visual Developer and have never really used it.
    The Version of VS 2005 I have came with SQL Server 2005.
    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Version: 8.0.50727.762 (SP.050727-7600) (Premier Partner Edition)
    Microsoft .NET Framework Version: 2.0.50727 SP2

    I have even download VS 2008 Express Edition so see if I get this option. No Luck.
    I downloaded and installed the MSDN Library.

    I have found the CrystalRedist115_x86.msi but would like to create my own Installation and use Crystal's Merge Modules.

    Do I have to buy a professional version of Visual or am I missing something in my setup?

    Any help or direction would be appreciated.
