Migrate Crystal Report from 8.5 to Crystal report 2016 Using VS2017

We are having a project that comprise of 6000 repeort. Code is written in VC++. We need to move code in Crystal repeort 16.
1. As of now we are using Crystal repeort 8.5 and use CRAXDRT.DLL to generate repeort.
2. I have downloaded the SDK and come to know that I will not be able to use the craxdr.dll (it actually is not even part of CR 13). So, you will have to use the CR assemblies for VS .NET. You can use these to create projects in C#, VB or C++.
3. I am using PutSQLQueryString to alter the existing query in rpt file.


1. Do we have any way to use crystal repeort as before(using com object) after some configuration settings?
2. Am I able to alter the existing sql query as before in CR16(as we were using in v8.5 using PutSQLQueryString ) ?
