Where can I find Crystal Reports .NET redistributable (10.033)?

I'm trying to get the CR .NET redistributable loaded up on our new ITSM (by FrontRange) server so that the built in reports work.

The documentation says it's looking for v 10.033, but I can't seem to find that anywhere. All I can find is 10.2.3600 which i believe is from Visual Studio 2005.

We have Visual Studio 2003, 2005 & 2008 on site (but not loaded on that server).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

(sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question...)

Thanks in advance!

1. copy aspnet_client directory from the default website on you local computer to the root of your application on web server.
2.  Then copy these dll files from your computer (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Business Objects\2.7\Managed)  to the bin directory


3. You will also need to run crrredist2005_x86.msi or curredist2005_x64(C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Crystal Reports\CRRedist\X64) on the web server.

Thanks all for your help, but I'm still at a standstill.

mlmcc - Thanks for the link.  I downloaded it, but how do you install the .msm files?

rajesh_chd - I checked those files on my local machine and they're version 10.2.xxxx; I have the 10.2.xxxx version's on the web server as well, but FrontRange's ITSM product appears to require the 10.0.33 version.  

Any other thoughts/suggestions?

My understanding is you don't install them just reference them when you build the installlation package.

I'm not really building a project... it's getting the built in reports to even function.  The DLLs must be installed on the machine so that Frontrange's ITSM product can see it and use it.  :(  Your answer would work for a coding project though.

When you install ForntRange it should install the appropriate dlls for Crystal.

I appreciate everyone's help on this.  FrontRange didn't install the Crystal dlls as necessary. I'm going to work with them to get them installed properly.

However, when I posted a similar question on the SAP/ Business Objects site, I received this link which appears to have all of the redistributables and merge modules from v9 to v12.  It doesn't have the Product Keys, but they should be able to be found w/ the Visual Studio / MSDN information.  I just can't find them.  I'm posting the address anyways in case others need the redistributables (installs / merge modules).

Thanks for your assistance on this.  I have the correct server install now, but can't install it because I can't find the product key.  I'll be working w/ FrontRange now to have them provide the information I need.  Thanks again.
