- I don't want crystal reports included as a dependency on a .dll I am using

In the component that the .dll is included in, you can change the following:
.NET Scan at Build = none
This should prevent the your .dll pulling in any dependencies.

- why is the .exe file not being installed when I run the .msi - .dll assemblies yes, .exe no -

There's not much information to use here and the cause of the problem could be any one of a multitude of problems.
How you are attempting to install this EXE?
Is it part of a component, a merge module, a custom action?
Are there any conditions running that could be incorrect?
Is the EXE a dependency that you expect to be added?
Is the install an upgrade or a first time install?
Are there any errors in an installation log?

The more information you can provide the easier it will be for the community to assist.

Many thanks - the Scan. at Build was the big help.

 

Point 2 was I'd added the .exe into Files and Folders rather than Components.

 

As a general point, installshield is far from intuitive.

 

Thanks again.
