.NET, C#, Windows App, Crystal Reports, SQL - asks for password - can't use - examples don't work

I am using .NET, C#, Windows App, Crystal Reports, SQL which is easy to create and runs but it asks the USER for the SQL password.  I can't use it because I can't give the users the SQL password and from what I read there is no way to specify the password in Crystal, you have to do it in the C# program.  I've tried about 10 examples I found on the internet, but none of them would compile, including the Microsoft example with ConnectionInfo.   If you know what I'm talking about, it uses REPORT which doesn't exist and it doesn't tell where it came from (maybe I need a using statement, but I've tried every one that has anything to do with Crystal and it still didn't work).  I'm a C# novice, so if you would rather send a VB example, feel free - I'll take anything that will get rid of the password inquiry.   But I need the entire code, not just pieces like Microsoft does, so a full example would be great.
