Crystal Reports Run Time - Visual Studio AnyCPU Target

Following error is raised when you run a report on a 64 bit machine with 32 bit Crystal Reports Run Time.

---------------------------Crystal Reports---------------------------

An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime.
Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to for more information.

After targetting the solution to x86 instead of AnyCpu,report loaded OK.


  1. Any idea what to do if you're developing a .NET website? I can't seem to be able to target an CPU for my website, only for the BLL and DAL

  2. Same problem as Rick. I'm using VS2005 and can't seem to find where to change the target anywhere.
