    That capability went away with Crystal 9. There are a couple of viewer applications available - the one from SAP will only let you view reports that were saved with data, it doesn't let you run them. There are third-party viewers available, see http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html for a list to get you started. Or, you can write an application in either Visual Studio (.NET) or Java to display reports.

    You can also download the CR viewer ffrom here:

    SAP Crystal Reports Viewer Downloads

    However note that the viewer only works with saved data. E.g.; no refresh, no pointing to a different datasource.
