Crystal Reports version in Visual Studio 2005

I just ordered VS 2005 Professional.  I want to purchase a Crystal Reports book associated with the version shipping with VS2005 Pro.

I called Microsoft to ask about the version of Crystal Reports in VS2005 Pro since the MSDN link about features does not make reference to Crystal Reports or CR versions.

I was told it is Crystal Reports for Visual Studio (build 10.2.3600).  The standard CR version 10 has build 10.0.3300.

Are we basically talking about the same version with a few nuances associated with integrating with VS?
Ideas on a good Version 10 book?  I'm waiting on Programming CR for .NET from Brian Bischof to come in to review.

Thanks!
Phil Tate

Yes, needless to say.  I'm questioning the version and also some recommendations of a Crystal Reports book.

I am trying to identify whether the version of Crystal Reports shipping with VS2005 is a full developer-version of Crystal Reports.

And as my question asked, I'm assuming Build 10.2.3600 is Crystal Reports 10.2 and 'Are we basically talking about the same version of Crystal Reports that you can buy stand-alone from Business Objects with a few massages, if you will, for Visual Studio'.

Hi TSFLLC,

Before buing a book, see if these walkthroughs are answering most of your questions: http://www.businessobjects.com/global/pdf/dev_zone/VS2005_Walkthroughs.pdf

Cheers!

Thanks Eric!

I've saved the .pdf and will review it.  I have since installed VS 2005 and updated my current application.

I'm having an EXTREME PROBLEM that I wish you had an opportunity to help with.  If not I understand.
