Crystal Reports fix to work on Windows 10

Hi,

I would like to know when Crystal Reports can work on Windows 10.

I saw that fix 15 holds a fix if I understand correctly but only for Visual Studio.

Any roadmap to support Windows 10?

Regards,

Roei

    What version of CR are you asking about?

    • Hi Roei,

      Interesting.... So I did some more testing, using 2.0 to 3.5 framework CR generates the correct folder path.

      If I select any 4.x framework then IISExpress/IIS automatically generates the wrong path but always inserts the 4_6_xxx path to the viewer even though I selected 4.0, 4.5.1 or 4.5.2...

      So I'm thinking this has something to do with the 4.6 framework and possibly now 4.5.x Windows updates. R&D never said why it was happening nor if it's the Framework or the templates or... was causing the problem, they just confirmed it as an issue.

      Curious why you do not have 4.6 installed on your Windows 10 image? You first screen shot show 4.6 installed. What OS is this last screen shot.

      As for a hot fix, not going to happen, CR for VS is a free product so we only release full builds, not patches ever. Unfortunately when SP 15 was released they did not have time or the resources to fully integrate and test VS 2015 due to 4.2 builds and testing. It consumed most of the DEV resources to get it out to Beta testing.

      I assumed you would have 4.6 installed, never tried it without it.

      I believe this was all due to 4.6 framework and the project templates in VS and CR. nothing more I can do....

      Thinking of another way around this by using a redirect.

      See if this works for you, add the CrystalReportViewer13 folder to your project, copy it into you app folder:

        <configSections>

          <sectionGroup name="businessObjects">

            <sectionGroup name="crystalReports">

              <section name="crystalReportViewer" type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler"/>

              <section name="rptBuildProvider" type="CrystalDecisions.Shared.RptBuildProviderHandler, CrystalDecisions.Shared, Version=13.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304, Custom=null"/>

            </sectionGroup>

          </sectionGroup>

        </configSections>

        <businessObjects>

          <crystalReports>

            <crystalReportViewer>

              <add key="ResourceUri" value="/crystalreportviewers13"/>

            </crystalReportViewer>

          </crystalReports>

        </businessObjects>

        <appSettings>

      ...
