Where i can locate the msm for Visual Studio 17 and Crystal Reports 13 ?

CrystalReportsRedist2005_x86.msm is not working for Visual studio 17 and crystal report 13 .

My requirement is to include the crystal report merge module as a part of setup for the client machine . We don't want separate crystal report runtime to be installed on the client machine . I have been researching for the past couple of days but didn't find the right msm for crystal report 13 . Please help.

    You need to see the Crystal for Visual Studio wiki here. There is a link to a "softwaredownloads" site that contains the merge module installs as well as the corresponding versions of the Visual Studio integration for the SDK. (.exe file). The latest version is SP28. The version you use with VS and the runtime/msm version that you install when you deploy your application MUST match! The version from VS 2005 will NOT work with VS 2017.

    There is a lot of other information in the wiki in terms of changes you may need to make to your code if you're upgrading from a VS 2005 application.
