Crystal Reports V13 Visual Studio 2013 - create a JDBC connection

crystal3.jpgThis question originally started with my Crystal Reports XI standalone. I have installed the Crystal Reports 13.0.7 plugin into my Visual Studio 2013, in hopes that I would have better luck. Once I have opened a report, I tried to create a JDBC connection, but could not as it was not in the list. The report I was working on already had a JDBC definition, but clicking on it gave me the error message "database connector could not be loaded". Please see the attachment for the whole message. Instructions from the internet tell me to download an oracle JDBC driver (got it), put it into a folder (done) and edit the CRConfig.xml (also done), but it still does not work. I have only one CRConfig.xml file and it exists under the Common folder in my standalone Crystal Reports version. The new plugin folder (SAP Business Objects) does not have a java folder, so I am assuming it is connected to the original (Business Objects) folder.
