VS 2016 & Crystal Reports 2016

I am using 2016 and Crystal Reports 2016. This is a net upgrade.

I have been creating reports with crystal reports and saving them as rpt files then I can run them from crystal reports or execute them from within This I have done for years using CR 9 and 2008,2013.

New Problem:

When I run the reports from crystal reports they are fine but when executed from with the viewer the filter criteria are ignored.

Is there a solution. I know this broke back in VS 2010. Is it resolved?

    I was able to correct the problem. I don't know if any others have had this problem but this is what happened and how I solved it. I did install correctly and no one was saying that this can't be done any more so. Like I did with the last upgrade I check CR2011, I create a new small app that creates and runs a report. To my surprise this time it worked (not like CR2011). Therefore I knew the problem was within by old app code. I removed the old CR viewer and added a new viewer back into the project and reran. this time it worked.

    Thanks for any help

    Which version of the Crystal SDK are you using? I'm not entirely sure that VS 2016 is supported, but VS 2015 is with the latest version. Get it from here: SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads. Use the "Install Executable" for integration into VS. The other downloads are the various forms of runtime installs that you can use when you deploy your application - DO NOT install them on your development machine!
