Crystal Reports 10 development in VS 2010

Hello all,

At my site we are creating reports with Crystal Reports version 10 (Build 10.0.0533) for a medical patient administration system. I'd like to do some development with VB 2010. Are reports created with Crystal Reports 10 supported in Visual Studio/Visual Basic 2010? If so, which software needs to be installed.

If not, which is the latest VS/VB version that can be used with CR 10 reports?

Your help and advice is much appreciated.

Thank you.

    Yes, that should not be a problem. But. You must use CRVS2010 to run those reports in VS2010. Download of CRVS2010 is here:

    SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads [original link is broken]

    CRVS2010 reference page is here:

    • CRforVS_13_0_1.exe is the install for your development computer. CRforVS_redist_install_32bit_13_0_1.zip is the runtime you'd install on the client computer - if the app is 32 bit.

      re.:

      Now, our Crystal installation came with the before mentioned patient system as an OEM product. What kind of license is required to run the VS/VB environment?

      - Not a clue. You'll have to talk to the OEM...
