Crystal 8 Merge Modules

In the documentation for Crystal 8 merge modules it says that I need to add these two registry keys.

1. The registry key should be: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\MyApp.exe] and should have a default value that points to the full path of the executable, such as [#MyApp.exe]. This is a formatted data type that is case-sensitive and that Windows Installer will set during the execution process.

2.  Create another key under […\App Paths] named “Path” and set it’s value to “[$MyApp.exe];[WindowsFolder]CRYSTAL;[ProgramFilesFolder]Seagate Software\Shared;”. [$MyApp.exe] is another formatted data type that points to the parent folder of the main executable, MyApp.exe in this example.

But my program does not consist of any executables.  All I have is DLLs and ASPs since my program is a web based program.  Do I have to add these registry keys still.

Thanks for all the input

In this case you may need to modify the global environment PATH variable to make sure all the Crystal files can be locatred and loaded.
