Crystal reports doesn't show up in visual studio 2022.


I went to 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,

To clarify, you don't need to design the reports in VS and can simply open the reports from any hard drive shared folder or within your app folder structure.

rpt.Load(@"c:\Reports\World Sales.rpt", OpenReportMethod.OpenReportByTempCopy);

Also, if you do find any issues, other than the embedded report designer is missing please let us know so I can let R&D know also.

SP 32 is expect to be out end of March but that date can change depending on how testing goes.

Is there a stand alone equivalent for the designer that can be used in parallel with VS2022 until SP32 is ready?
