Crystal report server upgrade.


I'm supporting an application developed by a vendor using Crystal Report 2008 and deployed in a windows 2003 Server (I guess it has installed Crystal Viewer 12).

I'm working in a Windows 8 machine, so I installed Crystal 2011 to adjust reports.  When I go to Visual Studio and I run the app in debug mode, I get an error:  “Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommLayer Version:12.0. ….”

I installed in my machine Crystal report 11 runtime, but I still having the same error.

In my new server (Windows 2012 R2), I had copied the solution, didn't install any Crystal app, and I also received the same error.

Can you help me to understand what are the apps/SP that I need to install on my computer to be able to run in debug mode, and also what I should have to install in the server to make it work.

Than you very much for any help in advance
