Error during installation of CR server 2011SP4



We are using Crystal Server 2008 licensed version for our banking application. Currently we are under the process of verifying Crystal Server 2011 SP4 with our application.

We have used RAS SDK for Crystal Server implementation.

When we tried with the jars delivered as part of Crystal Server 2011 SP4, it throws an error as “java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com.businessobjects.bcm.BCM (initialization failure)“.

The same when we tried with Crystal Server 2008 jars respective to RAS SDK, it worked fine as expected.

Could you please clarify the below points.

1. Why the Crystal Server 2011 jars specific to RAS SDK is not working? We need an immediate solution on this ASAP.

2. Can we use Crystal Server 2008 jars in place of Crystal Server 2011 Jars?Do we have any licensing problem here?

3. If we use 2008 RAS SDK Jars for 2011 , what are the functionalities we are going to loose? Is there any problems we can foresee?

4. Could you please tell us the 2011 RAS SDK jars which is equivalent to Crystal server 2008?

We are really thankful if some one help us to resolve this issue
