I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How are you opening the report?

It is my understanding that VS2008 only supprts the CR2008 and VS2008 versions of Crystal.

Do you have CR XI installed on the machine?

I do have CR XI installed - need it for my ERP system.
This is a new machine. My old one has both, and VS2008 evokes Crystal in the porject.
Do you have Crystal Reports Basic from VS2008 installed?

In the old machine, there is a "Crystal Report Editor". No so on the new one. Doesn't that come with VS2008?
It depends on the edition of VS?  I think it needs to be the Prfessional edition.  Standard and Express don't come with Crystal.

I have Professional
You should have Cryswtal with that.  I think it requires a separate install.

Nothing works. I am going to contact Microsoft to resolve it.
