Crystal Reports and Visual Studio 2010

Currently, I am upgrading a project from vs2008 to vs2010 and am having a problem with the Crystal Reports add-in. I have downloaded and installed the CR for vs2010 add in, however, it no longer contains a reference that I was using: CrystalDecisions.Shared.

I was using this for three methods:

Does anyone know what replaced this in the 2010 version or how to access CrystalDecisions.Shared in vs2010? Any suggestions are welcome.

Here is the block of code that I am working with:
' create a new temporary copy of the selected report
                    CR.Load(RptPath, OpenReportMethod.OpenReportByTempCopy)

                    ' Declare SchoolNumber parameter variable
                    Dim prSchoolNumber As ParameterValues = New ParameterValues
                    Dim prSchoolNumberDisVal As ParameterDiscreteValue = New ParameterDiscreteValue ' ParameterDiscreteValue
                    'Set the SSN entered as the discrete value
                    prSchoolNumberDisVal.Value = Me.fSchool.Text

As a note, I did attempt to change my target framework, however am missing the option to do so, unless I am blind. Please see the attached screenshot.

Thank you.

thats sounds weird

I use VS2010 and the reference exist.

<Reference Include="CrystalDecisions.Shared, Version=13.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304, processorArchitecture=MSIL" />

in the proyect

Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared
reference 2reference 1

I found the issue I was having. I read on another website that the issue was with the target framework being set to .Net Framework 4 Client Profile when it should just be .Net Framework 4. However, it also said that the option to change this was in the application tab of the project properties (where it was not). After more research, I found that the option to change the target framework now resides in project properties > Compile > Advanced Compile Options. Once I changed my target framework, I was able to include the missing reference and my errors disappeared.
