Crystal Reports not showing in Visual Studio 2015 Reporting

I am using Visual Studio 2015 for my project. I have installed SAP Crystal Reports from this link. How can I display a Crystal report.rpt in the reporting?

Fenced code block

You can display a Crystal report (.rpt) in Visual Studio 2015 by following these steps:

  1. Open Visual Studio and create a new project.
  2. Right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer and select Add > New Item.
  3. Select Crystal Reports under Installed Templates and choose the type of report you want to create.
  4. Once the report is created, right-click on it in the Solution Explorer and select Open With > SAP Crystal Reports.
  5. Design your report in SAP Crystal Reports and save it.
  6. In your Visual Studio project, add a CrystalReportViewer control to your form.
  7. Set the ReportSource property of the CrystalReportViewer control to the location of your .rpt file.

Your Crystal report should now be displayed in the CrystalReportViewer control in your Visual Studio project.
