Overview of Microsoft .NET and Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET

Microsoft and Crystal Decisions have a long-standing relationship, and this version of Crystal Reports has been uniquely designed and developed to integrate seamlessly with the Microsoft .NET platform. Crystal Reports was first released in 1992 as a Windows-based report writer, and Microsoft adopted Crystal Reports as the standard for Visual Basic in 1993.[1] Visual Studio .NET now integrates a special version of Crystal Reports, further integrating Crystal Reports for use with all the .NET programming languages, including C#.

Microsoft .NET is an XML Web services platform that enables developers to create programs that transcend device boundaries and harness the connectivity of the Internet. Visual Studio .NET (VS .NET), and the individual tools and languages it contains, is the foundation for building Windows-based components and applications, creating scripts, developing Web sites and applications, and managing source code.[2]
