Viewing a crystal report in VB.Net

     I am creating reports in vb.net.  Is there any way to preview the report I am designing rather than building and running the whole application.  In the stand alone version of crystal you can preview your report, I can't seem to do this in .Net.  I have vb.net 2003.  
      Also does anybody else have this problem:  When I press f5 to run my app it takes almost a minute before it runs.  It takes the whole time  to build.  My app is not that big 12 megs.  I have a brand new pc with 1gig of memory, so I know that isn't the issue.

Do you by chance have a setup project in your solution as well?  If so you can remove it from the debug configuration in configuration manager.  Crystal setup projects are typically fairly large due to the merge modules.
