Asks every time - solution was created using an older or unknown version of SAP CR

I have a Visual Studio 2013 project that has been in production for a while. Now every time I attempt to open the project I get the message:

"Asks every time - Your solution was created using an older or unknown version of SAP Crystal Reports... "

If I choose to convert, I still receive the same message. when I open the project the next time.

My Web.Config has references to version 13.0.2000.0, which I believe is correct.

Additional production is crashing with a crystal reports load problem... but I'll get to that later... These might be related.

    Hi Stan,

    The Assembly version 13.0.2000.0 never changes, it's the actual file version we need. You can find it in Programs and Features, or search for crpe32.dll

    You can get SP 18 from here:

    Before running VS try right clicking on the devenv.exe and selecting Run As Administrator.

    You may also want to edit the proj file, may be some old references in there as well.
