The system cannot find the file specified.(exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

I have the option to add the crystal report viewer to a form, but when I try to make a report, it gives me the error:

The system cannot find the file specified.(exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)" Ive installed it on Win 7 64bit Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate and tried to create a report using vb.net. I tried changing target framework to 4.0 and then back to 4.5 again it didnt work . Ive even uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times still aint working .

The Installer I am using is : SAP Crystal Report for Visual Studio - Support Pack 8 (v. 13.0.8.1216) , executable file. http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_13_0_8.exe . and yet I'm getting that error .

How do I resolve this?

    Hi Arul,

    Make sure the framework is the full version and not the client.

    Must be Local PC administrator to install also.

    Try right clicking on the VS icon and selecting Run as Administrator.

    Create a new project, while on the Form design tab right click on the Tool Bar and Choose Item and select the CR Viewer version 13.x.x.

    Then drop it onto the Form, The App wizard should now add CR Engine, shared and Form to the Project References: ( Note: this is VS 2010 but exact same thing for VS 2012 )

    PS - CR for VS will be supported in VS 2013 in SP 9.

    Don
