CR version 11.5 migration

Hi there,

     our company is currently in the process of upgrading our software development tools. So I have upgraded to Visual Studio version 2013 (VB.Net) and have also installed a version of SAP Crystal Reports 2013. Our current setup is Visual Studio 2008 and CR 11.5 R2. I am having some issues trying to map the new references, i.e. our application currently references the following libraries.

CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine

CrystalDecisions.Shared

CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms

Do the above libraries exist in the 2013 version of Crystal Reports?

Here is some code that I am currently using in my project.

Ahhhh - got ya. Great questions.

Existing reports created in CR XI / XI R2 should not need to be updated at all. To run these reports and any new reports created in CR 2013 in .NET 2013, you will need to download the install exe for SAP Crystal Reports, Developer Version for Visual Studio .NET.

Use the SP 13 install exe - download link is in this document:

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

Once you have run the exe, you will get runtime version 13.x. Then, opening a .NET project created in VS 2008 will automatically update the references so theoretically (keeping your fingers crossed) that is all you should need to do to update the app.
