Call a Crystal Report from C# Visual Studio 2015

Hi all, I have many existing Crystal Reports in Crystal version 12.3.0.601 2008. Very soon I need to change the way they are called from Epicor to a Visual Studio 2015 C# application. All the reports use one XML file as the data source. Sounds easy no?

Well I am having allot of trouble figuring this out. It seems I need a product called CrystalDecisions. is that correct? where can I buy it? Thanks very much for any help. P.S. It looks like CrystalDecisions is an SAP product you get when you purchase Crystal reports for Visual Studio. Is that correct please?

    Hi Tim,

    You need Crystal Reports for Visual Studio which is a free download.

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

    This will install the Report designer add-in for Visual Studio as well as the runtime. You can add the reports to your solution and edit them in Visual Studio. Add a new project to call the reports and you're good to go.

    Good luck,

    Brian
