Could not resolve COM reference, keep getting this error


  • Hello guys,

    At the moment I am working on a Windows form application writen in C#. Now I want to make a Report with crystal. But when I´m trying to run the application in debug mode I keep getting this error: 

    Error 8 Could not resolve COM reference "6ae44ff1-eccf-4a72-96ce-95bcd1ea2097" version 13.0. The type library importer encountered an error during type verification. Try importing without class members. ExceltoAccess

    I do know it is the REPORTRENDERERLib.dl Reference.

    What could this be, I've been searching litteraly for 2 hours straight and couldn'd find anything usefull.

    I've installed: SAP Crystal Reports runtime engine for .NET Framework (64-bit) &

    SAP Crystal Reports version for Visual Studio 2010

    I also have tried to change the targetframwork in VS and also the Build Platform, please some help guys.

    Thanks in Advance

  • The error you're getting is that the type library contained a type that couldn't be imported.  The first thing to confirm is that you are compiling for x86 and that you have installed the x86 version of CR.  You probably shouldn't be using x64 unless your app really needs access to all that memory and you don't want to support x86. 

    The next thing you should do is create a simple win app and add a CR to it and confirm it runs.  CR should be an option in the New Item dialog after you've installed the VS extension (IIRC).  Therefore you shouldn't need to add any additional components after that.
