System requirements for using Crystal Reports 2013


I am planning to use SAP Crystal Report 2013 for pulling out reports from an existing web application.

My current system specifications are -

Visual Studio 2005, Windows XP(development and testing environment), IIS V5.1 and Windows 2000 Server (production server)

In order to use Crystal Reports 2013 I found out that I need to upgrade to Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, IIS 7.0

What would be the Visual Studio version that I need to use?

Also, will upgrading my system and using Crystal Reports have an impact on the SQL Server as well as the Visual Studio ?

    You will need VS 2010 or newer. Also, the SDK no longer comes with the Crystal Reports install. Instead, you need to download it from here: You'll download and install the latest version of the "Install Executable" to get integration into Visual Studio. The other downloads available on that page are for the various runtime installs that you can use to deploy your application.
