CR issue when Migrating from VS2010/CR2008 TO VS2012/CR2013 SP01


Hi Ludek,

Recently we are task to migrate our applications using Visual Studio 2008/2010 - Crystal Reports 2008 to VS 2012 - Crystal Report 2013 Version 14.1.1.1036.

During the conversion process I attempted to recompile my VB.NET application and its Crystal Report, Im unable to reference and locate the following Crystal Reports objects into my application :

- CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Design

- CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine

- CrystalDecisions.ReportsSource

- CrystalDecisions.Shared

Would appreciate if you could point what I'm missing and advise how I could resolve this issue.

Thank you so much.

Cheers,

Tan

Hi Tan,

Unlike CR 2008, CR 2013 does not install .NET SDK (Assemblies).

And here is where it gets a little complex. See below article, facts are the exact same for CR 2011 and CR 2013.

So, the solution is to keep designing your report with CR 2013 but use CR for VS 2012 SDK (13.0) to develop your application.

SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads

Thanks,

Bhushan
