Can I patch the built-in Java instance of Crystal Reports 2013

We have an enterprise wide effort underway, by someone somewhere, to patch all instances of java to the most current version. That's every instance, every app, every server. I'm assuming some java scare. There's no time to plan out an upgrade of Crystal, so we're trying to figure out if that will work ... patching java from the original 6.0.370.6 version to 6.0.151. Has anyone done that, or is there a 'recommendation' against it ? Thanks in advance.

Hi Robert,

It should work fine, but go to and search for Crystal Platform and it will tell you what version of Java is supported.

Any version of 6 should be fine.

If they are pushing Java updates why not move to 7 or 8?

Thanks Don. Yeah if it will work I can do 7 or 8 as well, just wasn't sure if any of this was a good idea. We're being asked to be on the latest versions which today are Java6_151, Java7_141, or Java8_131. So maybe I'll try baby steps and go with Java6_151 for now :)
