Help Needed with some legacy software.


My small printing company uses older shop management software. The invoices, purchase orders, packing lists and all reports we generate were created using crystal reports (.rpt files).

All of our users currently use windows XP, but we are preparing to switch to windows 7 or 8.

I have installed the software on a windows 7 machine (32-bit) and it seems to work fine, EXCEPT the “newer” reports which we have customized do not load

I believe the original “boiler-plate” reports (which came with the software and which work fine on windows 7) are Crystal version 5!

The ones we have customized since the original installation, have been modified using v6, v7 or v8. These are the ones which do not work.

Everything works fine on the XP operating system.

What do I need to do to get the reports to load correctly? Are there some “newer” library files that I need to copy to the system folder? Thanks

The package referred to above is Micro-Ink Enterprise 2000 Print Management Software.
