CRVS 2010 RTM issues locking and crashing VS2010

I finally had some time to test the RTM of Crystal Report 2010 for Visual Studio 2010 on a new machine but I have not had much luck getting it to work. When I try to use "Database Expert" VS 2010 locks up. Trying to use "Set datasource location" causes VS2010 to crash. I seen a few related posts with similar issues but nothing that really fixes it.

    Can you please check to see if there is any conflicting Crystal Reports runtime loaded when you are editing your report? You can use tools like Process Explorer or [Modules|] to check. You'll want to specifically look for the version files, plus anything else Crystal from the past.

    Hi Brad,

    See this and other threads for more info: Visual Studio Crashing when open an existing crystal report.

    Is this only with old reports or when creating a new report?

    So far we have not been able to duplicate the issue in Support and all logs and various process explorers are not helping to determine the cause of this issue. It's not happening on many users PC's so there is likely a unique combination of install orders or missing deep down dependencies causing the problem.... I think...

    If you can please use the other links to add your notes and tests to so they are in one place.

    One of the suggestions was to rename the dll. See if that works for you? Side effect may be that you can't open old reports.

    Thank you
