Hi,
I have installed VS 2012 Express onmy Windows 7, and upgraded a web project developed in VS 2008 with Crystal Reports (the one that comes with VS). Upgrade was OK, but now all references for Crystal Report in my project can't be resolved.

Example:

Warning	1	Could not resolve this reference. Could not locate the assembly "CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine, Version=10.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304". Check to make sure the assembly exists on disk. If this reference is required by your code, you may get compilation errors.	Reportes

Open in new window


On my PC, I installed SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio - 2012 (CRforVS_13_0_5.exe). Now I can see all crystal reports references in my VS and I have added all of them. But I still got same errors . Is it possible to work with CR in VS 2012 and be able to compile my old reports?

Crystal Reports never worked with the Express edition of VS.

Ok. Just a question:

Do MS reports (and their extension as .rdlc ) work in VS 2012 Express?
