Unable to find Crystal Report Viewer Control in VB.NET

Hello,

I have VB.NET Standard and Crystal Reports V10 Developer Edition.

I have written a windows form to display a report which I have written in Crystal Reports.

I am trying to write a web form to do the same thing. Unfortunately I can't find the Crystal Report Viewer control in the VB toolbox. When I try to add it buy customising the toolbox and looking at the .NET framework components it is missing from the displayed list. I have an option to Browse for additional controls - can you tell me where I should look?

thanks,

David

No I havent - but when I choose "Add References" these options do not appear on the .NET reference list.

that is because they are COM dlls, so you click on the COM tab, then you can locate the CR dlls, and when you add the references, .NET will build the necessar COM-wrappers for each CR DLL.
