Error with Crystal Reports 2013 and Visual Studio 2012

Hello Experts,

I'm trying to run a Crystal Report on Visual Studio 2012, my code is the following:

        m_da = New SqlDataAdapter("Select * from YearBudget", g_cn)
        m_da.Fill(m_ds)
        Dim myReport As New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument
        myReport.Load("C:\Budget.rpt")
        myReport.SetDataSource(m_ds.Tables(0))
        ViewerForm.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = myReport
        ViewerForm.Show()

I do not receive any error on design, the problem is when I'm running the application, I got the following error:

Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64\dotnet1\crdb_adoplus.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

The subfolder "....\dotnet1" does not exist on my PC, only exists on C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86. I'm afraid it is a 32/64 plataform problem, but I don't know how to fix it.

I'm running Visual Studio 2012 on a Windows 8 machine (64 bit).

Any help will be welcome.

Are you using the version of Crystal that can be downloaded for VS2012?

Yes, I download the version from the following link:

http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-35074

And I did not have any issue during the installation, even it works fine on the VS IDE, my problem is when I execute the application.

Thanks.

What did you install when installed the application?
You need to use the Crystal MSI

Hello, finally I found the solution, it has to be edited the app.config file and add the followin code:

 <startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
    <supportedRuntime version="v4.0"/>
  </startup>
