Why did you update to framework 4.5?

You probably need a service pack for Crystal 13.  See this link for the SPs

I believe you need at least SP9

Then you will need to upgrade Crystal so it can be used in 4.5

After modify app.config file in debug folder, works.

<startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true"><supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.5"/></startup></configuration>
