i try to make a small tool to export an Report to an PDF files using below code. The Form contain just 2 buttons and a CrystalReportViewer element.

The strange thing is, that doesn't matter, which kind of export i try (Excel, PDF, TXT) i always get this error message, tested under Visual Studio 2010 and 2013:

System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: "CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.PropertyBag


at CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.EromReportSourceBase.ExportToStream(ExportRequestContext reqContext) bei CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FormatEngine.ExportToStream(ExportRequestContext reqContext) bei CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FormatEngine.Export(ExportRequestContext reqContext) bei CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FormatEngine.Export() bei CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument.Export() bei WindowsApplication1.Form1.Button2_Click_1(Object sender, EventArgs e) in F:\Entwicklung\DotNet\PCRichard\Projects\WindowsApplication4\WindowsApplication4\Form1.vb:Zeile 26.

    Hi Richard,

    Your code should work.

    How did you install Crystal Reports for Visual Studio? did you use the installer for VS or did you simply run the MSI in the redist package?

    Use this for integrating into VS:

    And then check your references, make sure they are Version 13.x.x.x
