BI4 loading a Crystal report in PDF format through opendocument and HttpWebRequest


Hi Folks,

I was wondering if anyone had any guidance.

I currently maintain an application that is using open document and a HttpWebRequest to get a Crystal report of a Business Objects server and save it locally. This was working well with B03.1. We are upgrading to BI4 and it works less well because the format of the open document link from BI4 has changed to include a number which references the installation date and time of BO on the server. This crashes my existing code.

Has anyone successfully used open document and a http web request on BI4? Or has anyone any links to examples of downloading Crystal reports using the SDK that are BI4 based? The information for the BI4 sdk seems very sparse.
