Crystal versions to legally install the runtime

We're looking to use the Crystal reports runtime internally within an organization. It will be used by third party software we're implementing to generate PDFs.

I'm interested in what is required to legally install the runtime located here in the above situation:

Specifically, does Crystal XI Developer qualify?

Does Crystal XI Developer have to be installed on the same machine as the runtime to be license compliant, or does the organization just have to generally own a copy of Crystal Developer?

    If above doesn't help it's best to call sales at 866-681-3435.

    Hello Chuck

    All runtime is free - for Windows apps. You do not need to install the Crystal XI Developer (assuming you mean the CR designer), though this would be another way to get the runtime there. But then, you'd have to purchase a copy of the CR designer for every desktop...

    If you use the merge modules to install the runtime, there is no cost. There are merge modules for the RDC SDK and VS .NET SDK.

    Doe web apps deployed internal to your organization, there is no extra licensing (e.g.; all of the above applies). Externally deployed web apps do need extra licensing and for this you will have to contact sales.
