Is that the correct path for that dll? Did you see if any of the dependencies are missing? file:/// is an unusual item for a winform application.
krishna97 4-Aug-13 10:02am
ok this code
OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from kkp", con);
OleDbDataAdapter sdt = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
DataTable ds = new DataTable();
CrystalReport2 crp = new CrystalReport2();
crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crp;

same error

See Crystel Report Error in VS2010[^]
A solved question

linking to the following suggestion:

when u received this kind of error:
"Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\dotnet1\crdb_adoplus.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."
try to add this to your .config file (usually app.config)
< startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
< supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>
< /startup>

Good luck,

Add the lines in the solution above to your app.config file. But what is your .net version because the above solution works only for .net4.

If you want to comment on a solution then use the "Have a Question or Comment?" link next to it. Don't post comments (or questions) as a "Solution" to a post
Add below script to "ApplicationConfiguration" file and rebuild your project

<startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>

<supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>
CHill60 12-Jul-17 7:41am
Which is the accepted solution from nearly 4 years ago!
NiravPatel19081988 3-Aug-17 10:37am

I have been searching for a solution for weeks to dynamically set the database without success. I changed to use a dataset but got the file not found error so initially dismissed that method. Luckily I found this post, now very happy!!
thanks bro it working

< startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true">
< supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>
< /startup>
