1300659 - Does the Crystal Reports bundle (version 10.5) of Visual Studio .NET 2008 support backward compatibility with versions 10.2 and 10.0?


  • Bundled versions of Crystal Reports do not ship with the full complement of database DLLs included in full versions.
    • Reports created in full Crystal Reports 10.0 using the Visual Studio .NET 2005 (10.2) or Visual
      Studio .NET 2008 (10.5) runtime may display a database error.
    • An example of a missing database driver is the native Oracle driver; crdb_oracle.dll
  •  There have been no major changes in report structure or functionality of Crystal Reports version 10.
  • With the exception of database connectivity, report design should not cause compatibility issues.
