Clickonce deploy on x64 computer fails

I'm trying to get CR to work in my VS 2010 project.

I installed version 13.0.1 from [|], and I'm running the program in x86 mode.

This line throws an initialization error:

Dim crApp As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument
crApp = New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument

Crystal Reports

An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime. Either

the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient, or the Crystal Reports

runtime is not installed correctly. Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports

redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal

Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to for more information.

I've gotten this to work by uninstalling the version installed by ClickOnce (SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine for .NET Framework 4(64-bit) ) and installing the x86 version specifically (CRRuntime_32bit_13_0_1.msi), but then I can't use the bootstrapper setup program.

Any way to get this to just work out of the box on a 64 bit computer?

If not, why release a x64 version if it doesn't work and no one can use it?

Will the final release of this version be functional?

    You compile that app in x86 mode but you want to run it in 64 bit mode. That's why we provided a 64 bit runtime package.

    If you want to run in 64 bit mode then compile the app 64 bit mode and distribute the 64 bit runtime.

    The final functional, less a few know tracked issues, is functional as long as you build and deploy it properly.
