  • The MSDN forums do not support 3rd party tools like Crystal Reports. I suggest that you find a Crystal Reports forum by using Bing or Google.

  • Crystal reports is all longer time a tool from SAP. Even before that the support on that from Microsoft was stopped.

    A pity is that outside the USA you cannot connect to the English Forum of SAP, so you have to use Google because it seems they have a kind of IP address tool (for me this is always the same as hacking) and redirects you to a site you don't want to be. 

    However, be aware the search sentence "SAP Crystal Reports Net Forum"
