Does Developer Version for Visual Studio support the new Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition?

The CR for VS Updates and Runtime Downloads page (http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824) only says that the Developer Version for Visual Studio "does NOT support Express Editions".  The Supported Platforms document (http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-21990) only lists "Professional, Premium, and Ultimate" for VS 2013, but that document hasn't been updated since Microsoft announced the Community Edition.

   

So, does the SAP Crystal Reports Developer Version for Visual Studio support the new Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition that Microsoft released last month?  (I'm currently using VS 2013 Professional on a 90-day free trial, but would love to save the money if the Community Edition would meet my needs.)

      

Thanks.

    Hi Dan,

    VS2013 Community edition is released after CR VS SP12. So CR 13.0.12 is not yet tested with it, which means the current version of CR for VS only supports the VS editions mentioned in the supported platform doc.

    Now testing and support for new VS editions could only happen with the new SP release, again that is just a possibility.

    But for now, community edition is not supported.

    • Hi Dan,

      Does CVS support Plug-ins? That's all that CR for VS is.

      It will work in lower versions except the Report Designer will not embed into the VS IDE so you have to design the reports in a full version of CR. And the Templates won't work so you have to browse to the CR assemblies to add them.

      But of course if there are issues we can't get them fixed unless on a supported version of VS.
