Crystal Reports 11 and VS2005
Posted on 2009-07-08
I have VS2005 on my computer and a number of applications that use Crystal Reports engine all using crystal assemblies that come with VS2005 that is 10.2.3600.0. Now I need to develop some reports iusing Crystal 11 develop[er edition R1 for another system and I am afraid to install Crystall 11 R1 developer on my machine in case it updates anything related to VS2005.
I would like to know if anybody ever tried this, my concern is that VS2005 projects automatically add referecnes to the GAC area as regards crystal assemblies, in particular the framework and infostore whciha re not found anywhere. I need to make sure that altough I will have Crystal Developer Edition 11 R1 on my machine VS2005 keep using the original assemblies, any idea about this ?
