Crystal Reports has been integral part of Visual Studio since 1993. I believe the first time, Microsoft introduces Crystal reports with Visual Studio was with VB 2. Now, with VS2010, Crystal Reports are not integral part of VS 2010 any more.
Well, Not to worry.. Crystal Reports will be separately available as download from Sap. Yesterday, beta version is launched and can be downloaded by clicking here
