Installing CR for use with VS2012

Installing CR for use with VS2012

Installing CR for use with VS2012


I'm not sure if this is the correct forum and if not, hopefully I will be pointed in the right direction!

I have a web application that I want to be able to display / generate Crystal Reports from.

I am using VS2012, version 11.0.61030.00 Update 4 on a Windows 7 SP1 64bit machine.

I have downloaded the CRforVS_13_0_12 using IE to download, however, when I run the extraction I get a couple of errors trying to open the .msi files and the process then does not complete!

I do also have CR Developer version RTM installed on the PC

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong?

Many thanks


RE: Installing CR for use with VS2012

In order to integrate with Visual Studio, you need to download the latest version of the "Install Executable" from here: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824. The other downloads on the same line are various formats of runtime installs that can be used to deploy your application. It sounds like you downloaded and installed one of the runtime installs - you'll need to uninstall it and then install the Install Executable.

There is no SDK installed with Crystal Reports itself for versions that came after Crystal 2008.
