Need some help with the samples


I am using CR for Visual Studio 2010. After installing CR and verifying the install per the developer guide, I down loaded the samples and loaded VB_Win_Data_DataSets.sln, electing to convert it from VS2008 to VS2010. After trying this several times, I could only get several error messages in the conversion log file.

I have read that it is easy to get these to work in VS 2010, but I can't find any instructions. The Crystal Reports for .NET SDK Samples download page has no readme file, or instructions or hints for conversion of these files into VS2010. I could not find samples created specifically for VS2010.

I must be missing something simple. Can you help me get some of these samples working in VS2010? I am interested in connecting to Collections in my program and to strongly types xml datasets. I plan to use filters and parameters and to use the ReportDocument Object Model. I could proceed without the samples -- but I am sure life would be a lot easier if I can get them to work and benefit from the good work that is there.

I could provide the log file. In part, it says:

Project: VB_Win_Data_DataSets Warning: this project requires Crystal Reports, which is no longer included with Visual Studio.

The converter (VS 2008 to VS2010) showed one error, converted 1 file, and did not convert 19 files.
