- In-Place upgrading from SP21 to SP23 in CR4VS+CRRuntime64 scenario:
Due to the limitation of our installer, after in place upgrading from SP21 to SP22(CR4VS+CRRuntime64), CrystalDecisions.Data.AdoDotNetInterop.dll will be removed from below path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\dotnet
The CrystalDecisions.Data.AdoDotNetInterop.dll is required to support UDT(User-Defined Types) of MS SQL Server for design time of Crystal Reports.
To make sure UDT is working, please use below workaround:
Run Visual Studio Command Prompt(VS2010) or Developer Command Prompt, execute below command:
Regasm “C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64\dotnet\CrystalDecisions.Data.AdoDotNetInterop.dll”
PS: This limitation only happens to in-place upgrading from SP21 to SP22 in CR4VS+CRRuntime64 environment, and it only impacts designing report to use UDT in MS SQL Server.
- Visual Studio 2017 Update 5
In Visual Studio 2017 Update 5, creating a Web Site project is changed. There is no File->New->Web Site entry anymore, ASP.NET WebSite project templates are all merged into New Project dialog.
However CR Web Site project template are not there, users will need search “Crystal Reports” in New Project dialog to get CR Web Site Project templates.
