Reproducing the Issue

Editing any Crystal Reports report in Visual Studio IDE for the East Asian and Russian Language shows unrecognizable characters in the context menu list.

Resolution

We found a usable workaround for this issue. The basic idea is: replacing SP21 localized resource file(jp, ko, ru, zh-cn, zh-tw) CRDesignerUI.dll with SP20

How to:

  1. Please backup Resources folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86
  2. Extract attachment, copy extracted folders: 1028, 1041, 1042, 1049 and 2052 to C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86\Resources
  3. In prompting dialog, select Replace the files in the destination to overwrite the files.
