When I try to re build windows application using MS VS 2008 , I get the following error
1.      Please build the project and retry, or set the Output Path and Assembly Name properties appropriately to point at the correct location for the target assembly
2.      The type or name space name  ‘shared ‘ doesn't exist in the namespace Crystal Decisions(are you missing an assembly reference)

Open the project's Properties window (last item in the Project menu).

In the Application tab, make sure that there is something in Assembly name and that it is a valid name for an application.

In the References tab, make sure that there is something in Build output path, and that it is a valid directory for which you have write permissions.

If this does not work, post screenshots of these 2 tabs and of you Solution Explorer.

This might be sufficient to solve the second problem.

If this corrects the first problem but not the second one, then do a full solution search for "shared." (with a dot at the end) through Ctrl-Shift-F, making sure that you select a search through all the solution. You should usually not have something like that in your code, specially if you are in VB where Shared is a reserved word.

Are you using Crystal in the project?

Is it the version that is available for VS or a full version?

If a full version are the developer dlls installed?
