CR not working for me with VS2010


OK with VS2008 I had no problem.. But with VS2010 I can't get Crystal Reports working at all...

I have installed

- VS 2010 Sp1

- Full Crystal Reports 2008 Sp3

- CRforVS_13_0_1

- CRforVS_redist_13_0_1 (for 32bit and 64bit)

I have tried unistalling everything including VS and rebuilding my machine but that didn't work....

What happens is when I create a new project and add a crystal report (or try to use any existing ones) the code behind files are blank and I have the error as below...

Error 1 Custom tool error: "Code generator 'ReportCodeGenerator' failed. Exception stack = CrystalDecisions.Shared.CrystalReportsException: Load report failed. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The Report Application Server failed

Can someone help with this please?
