How to run old version of CR ?



I'm trying to edit a few .RPT that were created quite a few years ago. Unfortunately, the developer passed away in a motorcycle accident (M. Blairon, creator of WinIris, owner of Ilicom informatique), and he hasn't left behind any sort of documentation about the program.

I've noticed there is a whole bunch of .DLL files in the system32 folder, which leads me to think that there is a version of Crystal Reports that's installed on the computer (Windows XP environment).

The PC also has working ODBC connections (SQL and BTrieve), and so I'd like to ask for some help running the crystal reports in order to edit the existing .RPT files.

Thank you for your help in this matter.
