We have upgraded our asp.net application from .net framework 2.0 to 4.5. We are using Crystal reports(version is 10.2) for reporting.
My developement machine configuration is -
1) Windows 7 Professional with Service pack 1
2) 64 bit
3) .Net Framework 4.5(Visual studio 12)
4) Installed Crystal report runtime i.e  SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio SP5 - MSI (64bit)
(Referred link is - http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-35074). Since the above runtime is for service pack 5 , we have downloaded crystal report runtime with service pack 1 from this site - http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824?rid=/webcontent/uuid/d01fdad8-44e5-2d10-61ad-9d2d4158f3a8.
5) IIS 7.5

but for some of the crystal reports we are getting error "The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument' threw an exception".
Can you please go through it and let us know which Crystal Reports runtime redistributable package will go with VS 2012 64 bit machine.
Any help will be appreciated!!

CR 10.2 is the version that came with VS2003.  It is not compatible with 64-bit.

You will need to upgrade to VS2010 or 2012 and use the version of Crystal available for it.

Hi, Thank you for your reply!!
Here, we are using VS 2012 (Framework 4.5) and so we have installed Crystal report runtime redistributable package 'CRforVS_redist_install_64bit_13_0_5' but it is not working.We are still etting error as,
 "The type initializer for 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument' threw an exception".
 Is there any other Crystal report runtime version available for VS 2012 for 64 bit?

What version of Crystal is it using?

The runtime must match.
