Install App crystal version 13.0.2000.0

I have created an application using the .NET 4.0 runtime using Visual Studio 2010. The development PC is Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. I need to use .NET 4.0 because of features required for XML. When I attempt to deploy the application on a PC whose OS is Windows 7 64 Enterprise, the required .NET 4 runtime is installed and the Crsytal reporte runtime is also installed. The install fails with the error: Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that the assembly CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommonObjectModel Version 13.0.2000.0 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first. It appears the latest version for download is 13.0.1... This issue appears to be common, but yet I can find no fix for it. Help, Please.

    Hi,

    Install the [Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 SP1 .Redistributable 64 bit|http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_redist_install_64bit_13_0_1.zip]|] on the server.

    Compile the application targetting to the 64 bit platform and then deploy it on the server.

    See if it still reproduces the issue.

    Thanks,

    Bhushan.

      It seems that every issue with Crystal Reports is solved by ensuring the Startup section of the  application.exe.config file looks like this:

      <startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">

      <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/></startup>

      I think the important statement is  useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true"

    If you are using Win App things would remain much similar to web app expect for app pool stuff..

    Try compiling to use x86.

    • 13.0.2000.0 is the assembly version. You'd see this in the GAC.

      13.0.1.220 is the file version you see if you find the file and look at properties. The file is here:

      C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\dotnet

      Good luck,
