    CR for VS 2005 (v. 10.2) is not supported on WIN 8. See the following:

    Just in case you want to try the runtime deployment anyhow, the links to the runtime are in this Document.

    Please note that if this does not work after installing the correct runtime, you will have to upgrade to a version of CR that officially supports WIN 8 (see the above referenced wiki).
