SAP Crystal Report 2016 Visual Studio Integration (not Crystal Report for .net)

Hi everyone, I have questions on SAP Crystal Report 2016.
After installation, we are unable to find the Crystal Report designer (version 14) in our VS 2010 Ultimate (.net FW 4 project). Instead we can only use the Crystal Report designer (version 13) which is from "Crystal Reports, Developer for Visual Studio".

Is it possible to use the SAP Crystal Report 2016 within Visual Studio 2010 ?

    Hi Charles,

    What is the difference you are looking for? CR for VS is the runtime for Crystal Reports.

    If you need to access BOE then you need to download the BOE .NET SDK package, requires Support contract. It's not free runtime as CR for VS is. CR for VS does not connect to BOE any longer and BOE .NET does not include the embedded Designer like CR for VS does.
