Problems Migrating from VS 2003 and CR 2008 to VS 2008

I am in process of upgrading from VS 2003 to VS 2008. At same time u2013 moving from Windows Xp to Windows 7. I was using CR 2008 on the XP and also installed it on Win 7. Now seems I have no support or SDK for VS 2008. Even if I add a new Cr object u2013 the screen us blank.

Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.

What do I need to do to get this to work u2013 and be able to safely distribute the resulting project?

Would upgrading to SAP CR 2011 work coupled with downloading the SDK for VS 2010? Or Reinstalling VS 2008?

Thank you

    Hi Jim,

    CR for VS 2010 will not work in VS 2008 and CR 2011 does not have an SDK install.

    If you have Installed CR 2008 before VS 2008 it won't be integrated into VS. Do a repair install of VS 2008 and that should fix VS, assuming CR 2008 is installed and it's not a CR 2008 Basic, must be higher to get the SDK to install and work. Go into Add/Remove Programs and select CR 2008 and change, use the Custom Option and you should see the option to add .NET. Sorry I don't recall the exact wordage, it's been a while since I installed it.

    And be sure to get the latest Service Packs for VS and CR 2008 SP 4. You can get them form the [download page|]

    Then check your references, they should be 12.x.x.xxxx and remove the 9.x from your project first if they are there still also. VS usually asks if you want to upgrade so I suspect a repair on CR and then possibly a repair in VS 2008 should fix the problem.

    Download page also has the Redist Packages to deploy your app and CR runtime also.
