I went to https://origin.softwaredownloads.sap.com/public/site/index.html and downloaded CR for Visual Studio SP31 install package. I installed it by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator. The title of the installer is SAP Crystal Reports, version for Microsoft Visual Studio Setup so I know I have the correct installer. It completed without any errors.

I opened visual studio and created a new .net 4.7 windows forms application and crystal reports didn't show up in my toolbox. I restarted my computer and reopened that application in visual studio and it still didn't show up in my toolbox. I right clicked the toolbox and selected Choose Items. In that popup there were no entries with Crystal in the name. How can I get Crystal to show up in visual studio 2022.

Hi Brian,

The problem is VS 2022 is not supported yet, SP 32 will support it.

The reason is the IDE is 64 bit, there is no 64 version of craxddrt.dll, it will be added in SP 32.

For now download the trial version of CR 2020 to edit reports.

PS - follow the WIKI to get notified when changes are done or SP is released

I've got stand alone crystal but I need them in my app. Based on your comment are you saying I can add crystal reports to my visual studio app if I create the .rpt file separately?

Also, do you have an estimate on when sp32 is coming out?

Hi Brian,

That's what Don is saying - sort of. You'll have to manually add the Crystal references to your project. However, because the components aren't integrated with VS 2022, I'm not sure whether the viewer component is available for viewing reports if you do it this way. You'll definitely be able to interact with your reports in code to do things like export and print, though.
