CRVS2010 Beta - Crystal Reports crashes Visual Studio

48 Views

I have a problem in VS2010 whenever I attempt to use anything related to Crystal Report files (*.rpt). Attempting to open any rpt file or add one to a project causes VS2010 to crash. I have tried un- and re-installing several times to no effect. Any help would be welcomed.

I'm running:

Windows XP SP3 32-bit

VS2010 Ultimate

I can get the crash to occur in the following scenarios:

Create a new code project. In that project, Add new item... Crystal Report file. The report file will be created and then Visual Studio crashes due to an access violation exception. It generates the following error in the system event log:

Event Type: Error

Event Source: Microsoft Visual Studio

Event Category: None

Event ID: 1000

Date: 6/9/2010

Time: 10:44:11 AM

User: N/A

Computer: A4731728

Description:

Faulting application devenv.exe, version 10.0.30319.1, stamp 4ba1fab3, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, stamp 00000000, debug? 0, fault address 0x00690072.

Next case: Add existing item... an rpt file created by the above process. The file is successfully added to the project. However, opening the file to edit it causes a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error dialog to appear, followed by VS2010 crashing. I managed to pull the following errors out of the process:

Unhandled exception at 0x7c812aeb in devenv.exe: 0xC0020001: The string binding is invalid.

Unhandled exception at 0x791dfe16 in devenv.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000034.

The following error was added to the system event log:

Event Type: Error

Event Source: Crystal Reports

Event Category: None

Event ID: 4353

Date: 6/9/2010

Time: 11:09:41 AM

User: N/A

Computer: A4731728

Description:

The description for Event ID ( 4353 ) in Source ( Crystal Reports ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: The keycode assembly, BusinessObjects.Licensing.KeycodeDecoder.dll, cannot be loaded.

.

Similar crashes occur when I attempt to upgrade or open any old 2005 reports in 2010.

Thanks.
