Upgrading Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008

I'm looking to upgrade an application that is still using "Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008"

I believe that the "replacement" for this is "Crystal Reports, Developer for Visual Studio" which I can download from here: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

My questions are...

1) What operating systems is the run time supported on? It installs on Windows Server 2008, but is it supported?
2) What are the licencing costs and implications for developers using Visual Studio to write reports?
3) What are the licencing costs and implications for distributing the run time with my product where it will be installed onto web servers and used by users to generate reports that they then download.

    Hi Mark,

    Correct, free for internal use but for reselling each user requires a copy of CR Designer.

    For more info contact Sales, they can sort the details out for you.

    Hi Mark,

    If you go to the download page all of the links including Licensing is there.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Licensing is the part that still seems a touch unclear.

    I would be looking to distribute the runtime as a part of a web application that clients install, there would be initial purchase costs and then ongoing licensing for this. This is presumably a "Server Application" that is "Resold to 3rd parties (redistributed)" and so I would need "to acquire a copy of Crystal Report for each 3rd party deployment (installation) or an OEM contract"?
