Crystal Reports in VB.NET Express Edition


P

PM

Hello, I have a quick question.

I am currently using VB.NET Express. I need to use Crystal Reports (Crystal
Report Viewer, etc.) in the application I am working on.

The only issue - since I am using Express Edition, I am assuming that
Crystal Reports is not included.

So my question - can I purchase it? Or, do I need to acquire a retail box
of Visual Studio. If so, which versions has it?

Thank you

You can et Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2008 Professional or better, or
you can purchase Crystal reports as an independent tool:

You should also be aware that SAP has only a *beta* version of Crystal
Reports available for Visual Studio 2010 at this writing, an issue that has
many CR users more than a little frustrated.

why, oh why would anyone actually choose Crystal Reports?

You should use SQL Server Reporting Services dude

An alternate to this is www.devexpress.com .

Support is great and its a dll copy install.

I switched to this after headaches with crystal reports.

Simple and it works.

You may want to look at miyann. It is a hosted solution so you do not need to install anything. It even has its own free report designer so you do not have to pay for any Crystal or SSRS licenses. You can quickly create and share reports with anyone.
