.NET without Visual Studio

I am using WinDev to develop application and was previously using the Crystal ActiveX to display reports I had created.

I have now upgraded to Crystal 2008 and this does not have the ActiveX so I am trying to convert the application to use .NET.

All the examples are written in VS and I don't have this. However, I have been able to test it and I can print a report.

What I need to do it preview it. However, all the example refer to putting the CrystalReportViewer control onto the Windows form.

How do I do this with Visual Studio?

As Ludek mentioned, you need to reference either CrystalDecisions.Web.dll or CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.dll. Then declare and instantiate a CrystalReportViewer object and add it to your form. You'll need to set all the properties manually.
