File Load Exception (CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms)


I recently upgraded both my version of Visual Studio from 2013 to 2017 and Crystal Reports to version .21. I opened up each report that I had created and was asked if I wanted to confirm that they would be saved as the new format which I did.

I have 12 reports in my WinForms .NET application. All reports render successfully with the exception of 1 report. I get the following error:

"System.IO.FileLoadException occurred HResult=0x80131040 Message=Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms, Version=13.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies."

The version of CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms that I have is This looks to me like that report is still pointing to the previous version that I had which was .20. I'm not sure how to fix this. Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks a bunch.

    Check the app.config to make sure they updated to 3500.

    You could try removing the report and adding it back in, that should update the version.
