Does my development computer need to be the same service pack as the runtime computer?

On my development computer, I recently installed the actual software I write and since then, I can not get into any of my report forms.  I get an "Invalid Key Code", and then a white screen (tab) appears.  I am using Visual Studio 10. So, I was going to reinstall Crystal Reports 13.0.2 (which is what I deployed in the package) using the setup.exe instead of the MSI that was integrated into my InstallShield Package.  I cannot find the full setup package though.  I did find this website however:

    Runtime should always be the same version you develop in.

    If you click Help and about VS you'll see CR for VS does not have a keycode...

    • Re. the invalid keycode. Check to see that the CR references are indeed version 13.x. I suspect you have CR 10.2 or 10.5 on the computer and VS will always substitute those. E.g.; if you have CR 10.2 or 10.5 uninstall these then ensure you are referencing v. 13 cr assemblies. This is for dev environment only. Runtime computers can have any versions of CR.
