2130136 - Team foundation re-imports report Folder and causes delay checking out the project


Using a managed Visual Studio 2013 Project that is saved in Team Foundation causes a huge delay in checking out the project when a Report folder is included in the build.


  • Crystal Reports for Visual Studio
  • Visual Studio 2013
  • Team Foundation Server

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new WEB project and including a folder with multiple reports in it
  2. Do not use strongly-typed reports.
  3. The web.config file is updated with the following line:

          <add extension=".rpt" type="CrystalDecisions.Web.Compilation.RptBuildProvider, CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=13.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304"/>

This causes the project to re-import the report folder which makes the checkout take a long time to complete.


This issue has been escalated to development and is targeted for Service Pack 14 but at this time we cannot confirm when a fix will be provided.

Update from DEV:

This is by design...

For WebSite, the cs file is not be generated when you add a Report to the project. , the cs file is generated only when you first time build the project or rebuild the project.

For WebProject, the cs file is generated when you add a Report to the project.

So the RptBuildProvider is only for WebSite to generate the cs file and is meaningless for the WebProject.
