Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010

Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010

Rate This

Crystal Reports has been a part of Visual Basic since 1993, and a part of Visual Studio since its first release in 2002. Crystal Reports has been a very successful component of these products. With the release of Visual Studio 2010, SAP and Microsoft have mutually decided to change how we deliver this important component to the .NET developer community going forward.


Starting on Friday, April 16th, the beta version of Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 will be available as a separate download from this site.  Just like when Crystal Reports was integrated into the  Visual Studio installation, this download will continue to be free.


Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 will contain many new features compared to Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008.  This blog on the SAP Developer Network goes into more detail on the new features and how they benefit report designers, .NET developers, and report consumers.


Both SAP and Microsoft believe this change in delivery method will allow for faster innovation of our respective products, and more value for our mutual customers.

  • @Jerry Scally: I had this same problem today.  What fixed it for me was renaming the directory at "C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects" to "C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects OLD".  Then I tried installing again and I no longer received the compatibility error.  Everything installed successfully.

  • One way to see if the the CrystalReportViewer control is working is by using the "Crystal Reports Application" template under the VB or C# folders in the Reporting sub folder.  This project template will add a crystalReportViewer control to the application.  You can also post messages on the SAP Crystal Reports format at which Crystal Reports engineers monitor and respond daily.

  • Ben, in regards to your problem, it is a known issue in Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2. The work around that was suggested to me is to close the Visual Studio IDE, reopen Visual Studio, reload the Crystal Reports project you just created, and then rebuild the project. Alternatively, you can try using the recently released version of Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 which should have the fix for your problem.

  • Scott, Crystal Reports 2008 is unfortunately not compatible with Visual Studio 2010. To my knowledge, the only version of Crystal Reports that will be supported for use with Visual Studio 2010 is the recently released Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010. You can find more information about the new release at the link Luc provided earlier.

  • Hello, perhaps someone can help me. The print and export button on the crystalreport viewer are no longer working. I may have opened the solution on a web dev express 2010 version instead of my vs 2010 enterprise. Would have that screwed something up?

  • Alfonso, Crystal Reports does not integrate with Visual Studio 2010 Express editions, but it should not change things such that your project would not work in supported versions of Visual Studio 2010. If you can post on the SAP forums at about your issue including information such as what versions of Visual Studio and Crystal Reports you have installed, which parts of Crystal Reports are working or not working, and any error messages you encounter, there are SAP support folks who monitor those forums and should be able to assist you with your problem.

  • Pradeep, you can download Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 at Once you install that, you will be able to use Crystal Reports in your Visual Basic projects.
