Does the CR2008 SP7 runtime work on Windows Server 2012 R2?

Our company has successfully been using the CR2008 SP7 runtime, however, our Technical Services department recently tried installing it onto a Windows Server 2012 R2 computer, and there were problems with some reports hanging (although most of them were OK).

Does the CR2008 SP7 runtime work with Windows Server 2012 R2?

(This question was originally asked under the "Evolution Crystal Reports 2008 to Crystal Reports 2013" discussion/question.)

    The problem turned out not to be anything to do with Windows Server 2012 R2 at all - we were even having the problem on Windows Server 2008.

    Hello,

    look at this document http://www.google.cz/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCQQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sdn.sap.com%2Firj%2Fscn…

    You will find there, that Windows Server 2012 R2 should be supported, but it should be 64bit version and also Standard Edition or Datacenter Edition.

    Kind regards

    • Thanks for your reply.

      The document seems to refer to the Crystal Reports 2008 Designer rather than the runtime, and I don't think the Crystal Reports 2008 Designer SP7 is the same era as the runtime SP7. Having said that, you would think that if the designer works on Windows Server 2012 R2, then the runtime would too, but it would be nice to see a document relating to the runtime.

      Thanks
