    > If you plan to use CRXIR2 with VS2005 or above then first install VS and then CRXIR2 in the machine.The CR setup wizard will guide you to install the setup.

    2) Is there any documentation for installing Crystal Reports XI, R2, on .NET 2.0 framework?

      Hi Jaya,

      The .Net sdk is used to programatically interact with Crystal Reports through code and do various activities on reports like passing parameters, changing database, export reports etc, many of these are explained in samples that are provided.

      There are 2 object models Viewer and ReportDocument, using which the above mentioned and many more work can be done. These sdks are available in Developer edition of our Crystal products and helps the developers to integrate there custom based application to use crystal reports in them.

      The sdk are defined under the SDK Fundamental section. So, in short, you can use the Crystal SDK for development of web and windows based application that would have Crystal reports in them.

      I would suggest you to try the sample first and have a look at the code, this would give you some hint about the sdk and its approach and you have the doc to help you out, well, that's a suggestion....

      Have I answered your questions?

      Let us know if you need more help!

      Regards,

      Atanu.

    Thanks AG.

    I have installed VS 2005 Express Edition, Crystal reports 2008, Crystal Server 2008 Trial version. But Crystal Server 2008 is not integrating with IIS.

    While installation, Server options are Oracle Portal Server 10g, WebLogic, WebSphere and Tomcat. But not IIS.

    So my question is how to integrate Crystal Reports, VS 2005 with .Net using IIS.

    Thanks in advance.
