    Hi sripadasatpathy,

    According to your description,firstly I suggest you check the path C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ASP.NETClientFiles  which contains the source file of Crystal Report, then to use Crystal Report in your project you should add codes as below in web.config.

        <sectionGroup name="businessObjects">
          <sectionGroup name="crystalReports">
            <section name="rptBuildProvider" type="CrystalDecisions.Shared.RptBuildProviderHandler, CrystalDecisions.Shared, Version=13.0.2000.0,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304, Custom=null"/>
            <section name="crystalReportViewer" type="System.Configuration.NameValueSectionHandler"/>
            <add embedRptInResource="true"/>
            <add key="ResourceUri" value="/crystalreportviewers13"/>

    Last, I suggest you could follow the steps in the link as below to install Crystal Report to vs2017
