I'm trying to use crystal reports 13 to generate a pdf report from PHP using COM, but I can't for the life of me find any sort of documentation or anything on the subject, so I have no idea how to actually use the COM interface. I've been searching for days for some sort of manual about using COM to work with crystal reports, but so far I've only found small articles talking about CR11 and which examples lack features I need, like setting parameters and such; I've yet to find any sort of solid documentation describing the functionality we have access to. Does such documentation exist? If so, where can I access it?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Alex,

CR no longer has a COM plug-in, what may have worked was the old RDC component. Only option now is to use CR for VS and Visual Studio ASPX WEB app.

You can get the download from here plus links to samples etc.:
