    Make sure you install using Run as Administrator.

    Or something else is blocking access, AV software needs to be aware of it as well.

    Showing binary for a RPT file means the craxddrt.dll was not registered and the Windows DDE command does not know to open CR in VS IDE.

    Right click on rpt file and select Properties and then the Change button.

    Now select :

    and Click OK.

    Now VS IDE should open the RPT files.

    Is there any downloadable link for crystal report sp21?

    If any, then please provide.

    Mr. Danilo, especially from you, how you Downloaded CR for VS2017 SP21 13.0.21.2533

    Also want to ask that I am using VS 2017. Here I can't add any crystal report.

    Regarding Crystal report in my previous project, I compiled the solution and data is shown in the report.

    But i can't see that report in design time. It shows binary.

    Can anyone tell me the reason and solution.

    Regards

    Thanks for your response. Basically I have created a project in vs 2010 with SAP Crystal Report in it. Then I opened that project in VS2017. Little bit of working and report is running on vs2017 but I can't add new crystal report. Also the existing report is in binary. I have checked control panel. Two programs of crystal reports is there. Now I want to make sure wether these are only two softwares or there is a separate program for Crystal Report service pack 21.
