Creating an Intranet web site to display Crystal Reports
I'm trying to create a Web site to view our Crystal Reports but am coming up with some issues during development. I discovered online that Release 2, not Release 1, is compatible with VS 2005.
When I attempt to download Crystal Reports XI Release 2 via the Business Objects search results, I'm redirected from www.businessobjects.com/products/reporting/crystalreports/compatibility_vs2005.asp to http://www.businessobjects.com/product/catalog/crystalreports/
Is my only solution is upgrading to Crystal Reports 2008?
The Crystal Report node doesn't appear in the VS Toolbox for adding the CrystalReportViewer to a simple Web form. I'm currently using VS 2005 Standard edition. Is this why the CR node isn't appearing in the toolbox?
Do I need to upgrade Visual Studio 2008 Professional?
I currently am using the following...
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
Version 8.0.50727.42 (RTM.050727-4200)
Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 2.0.50727 SP1
Installed Edition: Standard
Crystal Reports Professional Type; Full
Product Version: 188.8.131.525
Utilizing Crystal Reports Server is too expensive for our needs
