[Mono-list] Reporting with Crystal

Of course mono does not implement crystal. Crystal is a proprietary product, it is up to them whether they make their product run on mono.
When you install crystal on windows it goes into the GAC. They surely have no installer for linux, so to even try it on mono you would have to try and put their assemblies in the GAC on your mono machine yourself.
Maybe if a lot of people contact them inquiring about mono support it would get on their radar but I doubt it is at the moment.

I don't really know of any good reporting tools that run on mono at the moment but having worked with crystal I would rather see Active Reports run on mono as it is much easier to work with. Crystal is a mess even on windows in my opinion.

  i try to implement reporting with the Crystal-Engine in a ASP.NET Application, that should (must!) run with Mono.
  Now I get a Runtime-Error, when starting the Page from Mono like:
  Parser Error  Description: Error parsing a resource required to service this request. Review your source file and modify it to fix this error. 
  Error message: Assembly CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=9.1.5000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304 not found

  Does Mono implement the Crystal-Engine?
  If Yes: Whats wrong?
  If No: How did you implement reporting ?
