Integrating Crystal Report 2013 with IIS 7.5

Hello,

We have Crystal Report 2013 demo version installed with a Windows 2008 Server machine running IIS 7.5.

On our old Crystal Report 8.5, we can pull up the report directly in an URL, but I've read that that capability hasn't been supported since then.

I've also read that in order to view it on the IIS, we would need to create a Crystal Reports .NET- ASP.NET application to display them over our existing website. I have extensive experience in creating reports, but limited expertise in ASP.NET.

Is there any documentation that I can go over to do what I need to do? Would need to complete the deployment in a quick manner.

Thank you kindly,

    Hi Frank,

    I moved your post to the CR for VS forum. Overview tab has all of the info you need to update including sample applications to use CR assemblies.

    ASP.NET simply means you are using Visual Studio 200x and above. No real difference, other that what you reference.

    So what you need to do is get VS 2010 or above.

    Install Crystal Reports for VS - http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_13_0_15.exe

    And I'm going to assume you were using the RDC ( craxdrt.dll ) as your reporting engine SDK. Correct, it's no longer supported.

    So you can likely update your main project code to ASP.NET but you will need to update the RDC components to CR Assemblies....

    Don
