Visual Studio (2010) has encountered an error when saving a Crystal Report


I have Visual Studio 2010 installed on a Windows 7, 64 bit machine. I am using SAP Crystal Reports, version for Visual Studio 2010. I have built a new report which consists of a picture (loaded at run time) and a detail list of items. If I build the report in its entirety and click the report tab and choose save, nothing happens. Doing the same thing again, I get an error that says 'Visual Studio has encountered an error and is searching for a solution.'. Of course, a solution isn't found, and VS re-starts. When I reload my project and reload my reports (as files, since they are not tied to the project), the work I did in the report is not there. If I make a couple of changes, then save, it saves fine. It seems to be at a certain point in the building process that CR fails to save due to 'Visual Studio searching for a solution.'

I have not been able to get past this and I am at a point now where the report does not save when I make any change. The report is a simple data dump of three fields out of thirty-one.

I have no idea how to save other than the right click and save. The reports are not part of a project, but are separate stand-alone reports. These reports are called from within the code and are built dynamically as needed.

How do I save a report?

Thank you.
