Crystal Reports in VS2005 to be deployed on Win2012 Server


We have a Web based application developed in VS2005.

We have used in built Crystal Reports which comes with VS2005

Currently our application is hosted on Windows 2003 server

Now we are planning to

1. Shift our server to 64 bit server with OS as Windows 2012 Standard -

While testing we found that Crystal Reports are not working.

Would like to know if we need to install / configure anything on server.

2. For developers machines we are planning to shift to VS2013 with Windows 8.1.

On that front also we are facing issue because we are not able to open the reports in VS2013.

Would like to what we need to do to use Crystal Reports with VS2013 and Windows 8.1

    A couple of things:

    1. Your existing application is 32-bit. You would need to install the version 10.x 32-bit Crystal runtime in order to get this to work. If this is a web application, you'll also need to set up a 32-bit application pool for this to work. If it's not a web application, you may need to try to run it in compatibility mode.

    2. Crystal for VS does not currently work with VS2013 - that is planed for SP9 which is due out sometime in Feb or March. It has the ability to produce 64-bit programs and you'll need to install the version 13.x 64-bit Crystal runtime on the server.
