Crystal reports with Visual Foxpro 9, failed to load database information


When we recently upgraded a machine to Windows 10 an old application stopped working. The application is written in Visual Foxpro and uses Crystal Reports.

The error reported is:

"Failed to load database information

Details: The database connector crdb_p2bxbse.dll could not be loaded..." as below:

The application can load the Crystal application but crashes when it tries to output the file to a Word document.

I have tried copying versions of crdb_p2bxbse.dll to the application folder and to the Windows\System32 folder but to no avail. The versions of crdb_p2bxbse.dll I have are dated 2003 and 2017.

I have tried Crystal Reports V9 and V11 to no avail.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thank you
