Crystal Report - SP 30 (v 13.0.4000) side by side with CR 2011 (

1421 Views Last edit Dec 04, 2021 at 10:36 AM 2 rev


I am developing a winforms application in visual studio 2019 and 2015, which will be deployed onto a client machine running Windows server 2008 R2.

Crystal reports 2011 is already deployed there.

EDIT: I need to deploy application built with SP 30 (x64 bit) to Win Server 2008 R2 side by side with runtime version (win32_x86) .

(Not an option now): Can I use the same CR 2011 version with VS 2015, on windows server 2019.


(EDIT: Need like this) Can I install some newer CR version on server 2019 and install related runtime on client machine (server 2008) ?

NOTE: I cannot uninstall CR 2011 from client machine, as they are running other application reports on it.

I have deployed the winforms application with CrystalReports Dlls from VS 2019 (Win server 2019) to client system (Win server 2008 R2), and x64 bit runtime installed side by side to version (win32_x86).

As I run report from my application, it is giving following error:

CrystalDecisions.Shared.CrystalReportsException: Load report failed. ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The document has not been opened.

Many Thanks.
