Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 Runtimes

Here’s a quick post to share the runtime deployment strategy for CR for VS 2010.


  • Use the CR 2008 SP2 MSI runtime.
  • Refer to the beta deployment guide for information on how to redirect the assembly references.
  • Applies to 32-bit applications only.
  • Does not support the new WPF viewer.


  • Unlike prior releases, we will not be supporting MSM (merge module) deployments.
  • WPF viewer support is planned.
  • 64-bit deployments are planned.
  • Will be released at the same time as the production release of CR for VS 2010 in late June.
  • Using the CR 2008 SP2 runtime will cease to be supported once the production release is out.

Thanks, Blair
