Here is what we have done so far

1.       Downloaded Support Pack 14 (v.  Install executable from

2.       Installed it  on the development machine where Visual studio 2012 is available

3.       We have used web pages (.aspx) to load the crystal reports

4.       From VS 2012 it works fine; In localhost.

5.       Downloaded crystal report runtime 64 bit (64bit.msi)  from    and deployed in web server

6.       Access the report page.  Getting below error

7.      Note : Both our application and IIS is configured for 64 bit

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.CRPE' threw an exception. ---> CrystalDecisions.Shared.CrystalReportsException: Could not load C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64\crpe32.dll. at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.CRPE..cctor() --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.CRPE.CloseCrpe() at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument.InternalClose(Boolean bSetupForNextReport) at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument.Close() at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument.Load(String filename, OpenReportMethod openMethod, Int16 parentJob) at CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument.Load(String filename) at Avery.Magma.Web.WebForms.CrystalReport.Page_Init(Object sender, EventArgs e)

This pathing problem in IIS has been resolved with SP 16.

Download it and then it should all work as before.
