  • Hi,

    Sorry, as far as I can see, C++ with Crystal report, there are only the MFC project (a C++ project type in VS) and managed C++ application(based on .net framework CLR) can use the CR, other project cannot use it.

    That is it, if you want to give your feedback to Visual Studio product, please do it via the following connect.

  • Hi Alpasha,

    First of all, please make sure you have the Crystal report for Visual Studio installed in your machine, to check this, we can open the VS 2005 IDE about dialog, and then you will find the Crystal report version information, if there is no this information, you should run the Visual Studio 2005 setup file to install the crystal report components.

    To add a CR to C++ project, for example, we create a MFC project, and ( “add new item” | Visual C++ | Utility ), we will find the crystal item.
