Question about using Crystal Report 2016 with Visual Studio 2015



I've currently had success getting Crystal Reports for VS 2015 working with my solution. I have a .NET windows service that using the Crystal Reports Engine to create reports on the fly. I've also added the correct MSM for support pack 16 to get my reporting engine to run correctly in a service. I added CRRuntime_13_0_16.msm to be exact. I was using it with the Crystal Reports 2013 support pack 4 and it worked. If I went to the lastest version of Crystal Reports, Crystal Reports 2016 would it still work or would I need to use a different msm and Crystal Reports for VS 2015 version?

Can I have two different versions of Crystal Reports installed on the save server at the same time? I guess I could try it with CR 2016 and if it doesn't work just uninstall that and go with the CR 2013 support pack 4 version.

What would you advise?

Thank you in advance,
