How to get Crystal Reports Editor in Visual Studio 2013 Preview?

In Visual Studio 2005, if I double-click a *.RPT file in Solution Explorer, the file opens in the Crystal Reports editor.
In Visual Studio 2013 Preview, if I double-click a *.RPT file, it opens in Notepad.  How do I get it to use the Crystal Reports editor again, please?

There must be at least part of Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2013 Preview, because when I run the program it is able to view Crystal Reports, I just can't edit them!

Thanks and RICKgards

    Service Pack 9 for SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio is now available for download. Don't forget that to integrate CRVS into VS IDE you must run the install exe(!). And yes, CRVS SP 9 does support VS 2013. List of fixes and Supported Platforms documentation coming next week.

    Currently because VS 2013 is RC build CR installer does not integrate into the VS IDE.

    Likely the next patch after VS 2013 goes GA should support it, possibly Service Pack 8.
