Crystal Reports does not load aspnet_client files to proper IISExpress directory


We are working with Visual Studio 2013 and the latest SP 9 of the SDK.  I noticed on install, the aspnet_client files are still installed in c:\inetpub\wwwroot.  However, IISExpress in VS 2013 looks in <user>\Documents\WebSites\<SiteName> for it's global files (i.e. aspnet_client).  Upon trying to view a report, the viewer then of course choked on ol' "bobj" as the files were not where it was looking.

The solution I suppose would be to copy the aspnet_client folder into each website we create, which obviously is not ideal compared to how 2010 worked (one central location in wwwroot).

Any ideas on how to have only one instance of aspnet_client?  Redirect IIS Express to look where Crystal Reports installs the global files?

Yes, thanks Andre. And Hello!

What I was asking was where you found that EnableBrowserLink entry.  I know where to put it, and I now know it exists.  But how did you discover that entry to know to put it in your web.config?  What article or link did you find that told you that?

Also, what do you mean by "my development package".  So when you copied aspnet_client to "my development package", where is or what is "my development package"?

Thanks, and have a good day!
