Unwanted Register for Free watermark - old solution did not work for me

The answer from 2009 on how to get rid of the unwanted registration watermark did not work for me I have a licensed version of CR2008 that exports old reports (oracle 8i) using a jdbc connection. I mounted the directory where the CRConfig.xml file is located - it has a keycode in it. The reports export fine, but with the watermark in the footer.

Additional detail:

I created a Java application to export Crystal Reports to PDF in NetBeans. I downloaded this CR JRC which is working successfully:

This is not installed on the machine but rather I used the jar files in our non-eclipse built application as advised by the download documentation.

Now I am getting a watermark in my PDF exports that says: “Register for FREE at to remove this message.”

This link is old and no longer there. How do I stop this watermark from appearing in my PDF exports?
