Tthere is a completely undocumented property of the CrystalReportViewer control called ShowLogo. It is not surfaced in the Properties page. It does not show up in Intellisense. It does not show up in the Object Browser. I could not even find it using Reflector. But you can code it in and it will compile and it does, indeed, do the trick.

CrystalReportViewer1.ShowLogo = False

Works for me on 2005, 2008 and 2010, everytime.

I don't have VS2010 or CR for VS2010 so I don't know.  That was the suggestion for other versions of Crystal for VS.

Since they havent changed that property since it was added in VS2003, I assumed it would be the same.

According to the VS2010 Crystal API reference that is the property.  Are you including the CrystalDecisions.Web
namespace?

It hasn't changed since CR10.

As far as I know you cannot hide the logo in the 'free version' and must upgrade to the full CR suite.

Check in .NET Reflector, the property probably has [Visible(false)] or DebuggerVisible(false)] or [Browsable(false)] on it, which causes it not to show up in Intellisense. Have you tried just typing it and then compiling? Only if you get a compiler error, it's truly not available.

As stated above it may be a limitation of the CR.Net API.

The version of Crystal included with VS is limited in capability.  The intent was to give you a taste for Crystal and a desire to get the full version.  It seems most users are basically happy with the VS Crystal capability and unwilling or unable to spend the $ to get the full version,

I checked the binary in Reflector, you can do so yourself they are located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\Common\2.8\managed

And there is no property on the control that can be used to remove the logo as far as I can tell from the decompiled code. You probably will have to upgrade to the full product or switch to the SQL Server ReportViewer which was introduced to replace the free Crystal Reports Controls.

The SQL Server ReportViewer  doesn't display Crystal files.

Of course it doesn't, it displays Reporting Services reports. Reporting Services is also free (it comes with SQL Server Express) and as such it is a viable alternative for Crystal Reports.

The Windows Forms 2010 Crystal Reports control doesn't have any functionality (based on the decompiled code) to hide the logo. So unless you're going to custom paint something over it, it's there to stay.
