Crystal visual studio 2010 assembly conflicts

Hello, I've had tons of issues trying to resolve assembly conflicts with Crystal 10 and visual studio 2010.  Initially, I had Crystal Reports 10  installed on a pc.  I tried to develop using crystal 10 but some of the report icons would be missing and a red x would be displayed in visual studio 2010.  To resolve that error, I installed the Crystal Reports for VS 2010 and the runtime.

After installing Crystal Reports for VS2010, I started receiving assembly errors.  When I would add a crystal report viewer to  a web page, assemblies for 10.2 and 13 would be referenced.  This would result in many errors being thrown.  I tried to correct this issue by removing Crystal Reports for VS 2010.  I also removed the files from the gac and toolbox.   All of the reports at my company are developed using Crystal Reports 10.

After removing Crystal Reports for VS 2010,  I no longer have the issue with version 13 assemblies being referenced in my project.  Now I'm receiving an error stating lognet version Version=1.2.10.0 could not be found.  Can someone explain what needs to be done to resolve the lognet error and develop reports in VS 2010 with Crystal Reports 10 installed?  I don't want to install any more files that are not needed.

Do you have the full version of CR10?
If so is it the developer edition?

As far as i can tell and recall CR10.2 was the version released with VS2003.  It will not work with VS2010.

I think it is the full developer version, I will verify.

So, there is no way to have CR10 and VS2010 on the same pc?  We have to use CR10 but I also need to deploy reports to VS2010.  Should I intall the CR for VS2010 files again? Would that fix the log4net error?

It may.

I don't know if there is a way to use CR10 with VS2010.  CR for VS2010 is CR13.

Do you have VS2005 installed on the machine?
That is where CR 10.2 comes from.

I have VS2005 and Crystal Reports 10 installed.  My computer has not upgraded from Crystal Reports 10 yet,all of our reports are created with CR 10.  I will try to reinstall CR for VS2010 again.  Do you know where to find the files to download CR for VS2010?

YOu need the developer edition installed to build the application for CR10.  The professional edition doesn't have the appropriate dlls available for building the application

You could use CR4 VS2010

The log4net error mysteriously went away, I can now view the report in Visual Studio but all of the toolbar icons contain a red x.

The red X indicates the icon images are not present on the server or the user doesn't have permissions to them

I installed CR4 VS2010 from the link above but I'm not able to see the 13.0 assembly in Visual Studio?  I can see the files in the GAC but it is not recognized by Visual Studio for some reason.

You can only have 1 version of the assemblies in an application

Did you try build a new application in VS2010?
