Crystal reports template

P: n/a
I recenetly purchased VB.net standard and in the box was
a card saying that it included crystal reports (as it
always used to) but I cannot find CR in the templates or
in the toolbox. Can anyone tell me where I can download
it, or how I might install it if it is already there.

Thanks

To see if you have Crystal Reports, try the following:

To create a new report

1.. In the Visual Studio .NET Solution Explorer, right-click your project
to display the shortcut menu.
2.. Point to Add and click Add New Item.
3.. In the Add New Item dialog box, select Crystal Report from the
Templates area. Click Open.
4.. In the Crystal Report Gallery, select one of the following options:
a.. Using the Report Expert - guides you through the report creation
process and adds your choices to the Crystal Report Designer.
b.. As a Blank Report - opens the Crystal Report Designer.
c.. From an Existing Report - creates a new report with the same design
as another report you specify.
Note The Gallery contains a number of experts to guide you through
the creation of specific types of reports. You may want to build your first
reports using the experts, in order to decide which method of report
construction suits your needs.
5.. Click OK.
If you can do 1 through 3 above, you're in. Also, look for the Crystal
Control in your toolbox. It's at the bottom, so you'll have to scroll down.
