156" width Crystal Report with Visual Studio 2005

Post Author: kunchesm
CA Forum: .NET
I have a requirement to design a 156" width report (for exporting to Excel). And naturally i dont have printers to support this huge width reports (as these reports are not used for printing but just for exporting to Excel).
One of the option which i have tried to design these reports is -
- Installed MIcrosoft XPS Document writer and
- Created a new server form (in Printers&Faxes>File>Server Properties) and assigned my custom width & Height for the paper size as per my requirement
- Used this printer and form in my crystal report
Now, my question... is there any better alternative or option to design huge width Crystal reports in Visual studio 2005? Any help in this regard is highly appreciated!
Thanks & Regards

Hi Ganesh,
So it all depends on how you created your WEB Project. If it was a CR Web App then no issues, if it was a WEB Form app then no issues except you need to copy the whole folder: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\VS2013WebsiteCR\aspnet_client
to your app folder, maybe...
If it was an empty WEB app then it may be an issue with permissions ( more on this soon once we do some testing, R&D may have provided a work around to get IIS Express to work, not sure about using IIS directly.
Also search on Sessions and PostBacks, to get the second page you need to keep the session open/active. If not you may get nothing ot the same page everytime.

    I am not really familiar with all of the options for charting and what is or isnt in the bundled version.
    You can download the CR XI R2 developer edition eval from the website and see if it gives you the graph options that you want.  If it does then I think you can buy it at an upgrade price since you already have the bundled edition.

    You know, this forum is for controls, apis, components for the user interface Windows Forms.
    Unlucky enough, Microsoft does not support Crystal reports anymore for many years.

  • No images when deploying Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005

    Post Author: wcl
    CA Forum: Publishing
    Developed a ASP.Net web site that uses Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005, everything works fine locally.
    Following instructions from  http://support.businessobjects.com/downloads/merge_modules.asp#07 a deployment package has been created using CrystalDecisionsRedist2005_x86 merge module and the website has been installed.
    When it is deployed to a remote development server the report images are not displayed.  The report navigation works, it is the images that are not found when the report is displayed.
    Should the vs2005 key be entered some where on the remote server?

    Thnakyou very much for your quick reply.
    The directory has not been created by the merge module,  which folder should it be created in and what contetants should it have?
    an example of an image it can not find is "/aspnet_client/System_Web/2_0_50727/CrystalReportWebFormViewer3/images/toolbar/upd.gif",  so does the folder '/aspnet_client/System_Web/2_0_50727/CrystalReportWebFormViewer3' need setting up?

  • Using Crystal Reports with Visual Studio 2008

    I have bin using visual studio 2008 for a while. I have just started using Crystal Report (which came with Visual studio) . I have an Access database connected with 3 tables, the first two table has two test fields and one index field, the third table has two text fields and two index field (of which one relates too one of the other tables).
    I have generated a crystal report on one of the tables using the wizard. I have then placed the crystalreportviewer in a form (as a test). When I run the resulting form, all I get is the column heading label but no fields being displayed. There is data in the table. All I need to know is how do is make sure that the reports are accessing the data in the table, through the datasets???.

    How did you come to the conclusion that it is a problem with the UFL? If it is a problem with the UFL then there is little that we can do to troubleshoot it because the UFL is developed outside of Crystal. The code can do anything. You'd need to follow up with the person who wrote the UFL.
    If you are still unsure of the cause, then I suggest you start testing with other reports. Use ones with no database connection as a control group, then use reports that DON'T include the UFL.
    After that, you could capture a stack dump of your application and look at the results. See if you can find where a problem library file is. One thing to note, we won't look at your stack dump here. That is beyond the help we offer on forums.
    You could also look at restructuring the portion of your application that handles Crystal Reports. Instead of calling Crystal within your application, you could spawn a new process that does your reporting then shuts down. It will help to isolate the reporting to its own application space that is only run when a report is requested. It doesn't sound like reporting is a large portion of this application if you run 20 reports a day and it runs for 10 hours straight.

  • Barcode export to PDF - Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005

    Hi, we have a report that includes a barcode.  We can print the report OK, but when we export to PDF the barcode is missing.  Is there a work around for this?  We have to have the PDF of the report for archive purposes.  Thanks!

    Are you on SP1?
    Is this happening on your dev computer or after you deploy the app?
    Web or Win app?
    Provide more info on "missing"; you see empty space? Barcode shows up as alpha numeric text?

  • Crystal Report Dll problem with Visual Studio 2005

    I am using Crystal Reports with Visual Studio 2005. At one time there were two different version of Crystal Decision Dll in Global Assembly Cache (GAC). So I uninstalled both the versions and then only installed 10.2.3600.
    I am facing the following error when building my application in visual studio.
    The type 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument' exists in both 'c:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temporary ASP.NET Files\arms website\301a5b02\e03ad7d9\assembly\dl3\c30f5560\00f92427_3857ca01\CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.DLL'
    I have only installed it in .Net Framework. For some reason it appears in the temp folder. I cannot delete it and when I renamed it after the next compile it came back again.
    I would appreciate any help.

    Thanks for the tip.
    I installed CR XI R2 with SP2 and 2.1
    There are few reports in the system they use to run fine but now when I try to run them I get the following error:
    Failed to open the connection. Details: [Database Vendor Code: 4060 ] Failed to open the connection. C:\DOCUME1\SSheikh\LOCALS1\Temp\ZGA370 {71BFCD35-F652-48C8-896D-B93229A4D2C2}.rpt Details: [Database Vendor Code: 4060 ]
    I understand that these reports run ok independently and on production machine as well; however when I try to run them from my development machine I get the above error.
    I would appreciate help to resolve this. The code of the report is with report developer and I need to know what settings do I need to change where to be able to run the reports. Also I use my machine for deployment of application on the production server.

  • Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008 - dbf

    I use both Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 on same PC. I can not work with dbf files (format foxpro2x, dbase IV) in VS 2005 and VS 2008.
    Q1. Work Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008 with database files - dbf (version foxpro2x, dbaseIV)? I get error -
    Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer
    Failed to load database information
    or with dbf files work only Full version of Crystal Reports?
    Q2. How re-install Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008. In setup Add/Remove features not exist Crystal Reports check box. I only Repair/reinstall all Visual Studio but after reinstall same error
    Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer
    Failed to load database information
    3. When I can open sample project with Crystal Reports which use Crystal Reports (dbf file) this error is displayed:
    Crystal Report Viever
    Failed to load database information
    Details: The database DLL "crdb_p2bxbse.dlll" could not be loaded.
    4. I reinstal Crystal Report in Visual Studio 2005 - same error
    5. I apply hotfix Crystal Reports for .NET 2005 - SP 1 - same error
    Thank You

    Hi Ludek,
    1-For dbase file to work you need have permission on database files for IIS as well as user accessing the database.
    2-For re-install you need to insert the CD of visual studio setup then do custom install and then try to choose crystal reports for re-installing
    3-The old viewer might cause the problem. In this case can you try connecting to a blank dbase file.
    and for such issues we have a special forum [here|SAP Crystal Reports, version for Visual Studio;

  • How to get Crystal Reports for Visual studio Download

    I'm confused!  All the links seem to take me to this page SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads
    It has lots of fixes and updates but I can't seem to find the actual Crystal reports for Visual Studio 2010 download.  What am I missing?  Am I just blind?
    EDIT - I reread the page "All support packs are full builds of Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010/2012, thus it is not necessary to update incrementally"  Does this mean  the update download includes everything I need to integrate CR with my Visual Studio 2010?  If so, is it save to install the update over a previously installed version?  I have one machine that has both CR for VS 2005 and CR for VS 2010.
    thanks for any advise

    Does this mean  the update download includes everything I need to integrate CR with my Visual Studio 2010?
    Follow the below procedure to integrate CR for VS 2010 with VS 2010.
    from the link http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824 download 'Support Pack 10 Install executable' (first row first column).
    Make sure you have VS 2010 installed. Now install the above downloaded exe on top of VS 2010.
    That is it, above steps should integrate CR with VS 2010.
    Even if you have a previous version of CR for VS 2010 installed, iw ould not make a difference as it is not a incremental build but a full build.
    I hope this clears the confusion.

  • License - crystal report for visual studio 2010

    Hi Engineers
    i have a licensed version of visual studio 2010. but vs 2010 not included crystal report. i had download crystal report from SAP website,
    My question is
    if i deployed my .net windows application to my customer ,  take any license for crystal report for visual studio 2010 version?????????.
    crystal report for visual studio 2010 is a free version for developement and deployement???????????? tell me please
    If its not a free version tell me the price for crystal report for visual studio 2010 version.
    tks Engineers

    I'm still having problems with this registration issue.
    I'm using InstallShield 2011 for the installation setup.
    I've included the CRRuntime_13_0.msm file.  (That is the only MSM file I included, are the others needed also?)
    I've included the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64 and the x86 versions)
    I have tried to do a test install on both a 64bit and a 32bit Windows 7 computer and it keeps giving me the crtslv.dll failed to register error on both computers.  I thought it might just be due to the 32 bit MSM causing the problem on the 64bit computer, but I can't even get it to install on a 32bit computer.  (On the 32bit computer, I even removed the x64 bit version of the MS C++ 2005 Redistributable just to make sure it wasn't causing a problem).
    Can anyone give me any more suggestions?
    I need our application to be installed on both 32bit and 64bit computers.  Is only having the 32bit MSM going to cause me problems?  I'm not real familiar with trying to include the runtime exe's instead of the MSM and knowing which one would need to be installed on a particular type computer.

  • Crystal Reports for Visual Studio and (Wcf) Web Services

    I´m evaluating Crystal reports for Visual Studio 2010. I want to read data from a (Wcf) Webservice into the predefined Reports and deliver them to the Users in an ASP.NET Application. As far as I see reading Webservices via the XML/Webservice datasource works good in the Crystal Reports 2011 Applications - But I have Problems with the Integration of the XML/Webservice datasource in the CRVS2010 Environment.
    I read your Article on sdn: http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/13732
    which helped us to enable the XML Datasource in the CRVS2010 environment on a Machine where Crystal Reports 2011 and VS2010 is installed, but this required copying DLL´s and installing the JRE.
    But I´m not able to  run the XML/Webservices datasource on a webserver in a ASP.NET Application where Crystal Reports 2011 is not installed (only the runtime) - the above post doesn´t help because  the path structure is completely different on my machine. Is there a manual, which helps me to enable the XML datasoucre and the CRVS2010 runtime ?
    I´m not sure if reading XML is the best practice for a new Project, especially after reading your article at http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1952093
    I´m now evaluating ADO.NET XML as mentioned in your article, but I´m not sure if this is the right decision.
    Is there a a new version  for Visual Studio 2010 of the u2022csharp_web_adonet.zip example ?
    BTW: All examples in the Sample Code for Crystal reports for Visual Studio 2010 reference Assemblies in Version 14, which are not present on my machine. I had to find/replave 14 through 13, before they are compilable. Did I made a mistake during installation ?

    Hi Henrik,
    First of all you didn't make any mistake installing CRVS2010. It has assemblies with version 13.x
    Now as far as patches are concerned ensure that you are on SP2. You can get runtime and patch from following:
    You can opt for AD.NET as one of the datasource but what is the error/ warning you get when you use Web Serive as datasource?
    You can find the latest samples created for CR2008 here

  • Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 runtime LICENCE

    I want to welcome everyone. It's my first post on this forum.
    I want to provide my Windows Form application to a client. This application was written in VS 2010 and it uses SAP Crystal Reports for generating simple report.
    I've read [Crystal Reports Licensing Explained|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/index?rid=/library/uuid/10cd9e15-120d-2c10-3fb5-be299000b6b7&utm_source=crvs2010&utm_medium=lp&utm_campaign=licensing_explained] pdf and I've learnt that in my case redistribution of software that embeds the Crystal Reports runtime engine is free.
    My question is:
    Is there something else I must include in my application package for instance a licence file? Or maybe I just have to include SAP CR runtime or ask user to download it from the SAP web site and that's it?

    Hello Marcin,
    Please note that whenever you distribute your application (which uses Crystal reports) to others who may not have Crystal designer product, you need to provide the runtimes along with the application. The runtimes provide the necessary dlls in the machine for running Crystal inside the app.
    You can use an exe to install the CR runtimes and then deploy your app. OR you can include the msm files and create a deployment package.
    You will get the runtimes for CR4VS2010 [here|/people/coy.yonce/blog/2010/11/12/crystal-reports-for-visual-studio-2010-production-release-now-availableCystlR%2528SAPWeblogs%253ACrystal+Reports%2529].

  • Image Quality In Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010

    I am using the new production release of Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 and I am having an issue with image quality when adding an image to a crystal report.
    The image itself is a .TIF file,  and when opened in Windows, the quality of the image, which is mostly text, is very high. The image was created from a electronic PDF form and I intend to use this as a background for the crystal report, over which I will place data fields.
    As soon as the image is added to the report you can see the degradation in quality in the design window and in the preview window within visual studio. The quality remains low when viewing the report in the WPF report viewer and when printing from this control.
    I have ensured the "Retain Original Image Color Depth" option is checked but this has made no difference (the image is black and white anyway).
    The image in the report has been left at its native size, no resizing at all. The image is 355KB in size if that's relevant.
    Is there a reason the image looses quality when added to a report? Is it being compressed? More importantly, is there a way to make the image retain its native quality when adding it to a crystal report?
    Thanks in advance.

    The following image is the image I am trying to display. Although imageshack has converted it to a png, if you right click and save the image you can open it and zoom in with little image degradation.
    The following is a screen shot of how the tif file looks in the designer when zooming in:
    The second image has lost its clarity and is unusable when printing.
    I hope this helps.

  • Side by side installation Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 - CRXIR2 ?

    we are integrating Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 into our C++ application.
    We used to work with CRXIR2.
    A customer of ours has upgraded to the VS2010 runtime version for 64-bit,
    and seems to be having random crashes.
    We haven't been able to pinpoint the problem...
    They are running several of our applications simultaniously on terminal servers.
    What we noticed is that they did not uninstall CRXIR2 from there system.
    Is this side-by-side installation supported?
    So XIR2 next to Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010  ?
    And even: can you have a Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010  64bit next to a 32bit? Probably yes?
    Next to that: is there any limit of concurrent users (applications) that use the .NET component?
    I would think not...

    Hi Bart,
    Side by side installation shouldn't be a problem, unless you had Beta version of CRVS2010 installed on the same machine.
    For better results try upgrading to use SP1 of CRVS2010. For CRVS2010 resources, you can go through this
    Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 - Deployment
    I haven't seen any problem with 64bit next to a 32bit til date.
    You can go through this for CR support on x64
    To answer your last question, go through following:
