Will Current Crystal Runtime work with older ASP application

Good morning... we have an older application that was using the Crystal Reports (v8.5 ) "run-time" objects to produce/render reports from our ASP... (not ASP.NET) application. We have now moved the application to a new server and need to get the reports working again.


a) Does the current version of Crystal have the same concept of a run-time version that gets instantiated from ASP pages (not ASP.NET) and can run 8.5 reports?

b) If not, At what version did the support get lost (dropped)? In other words, could I buy 2008, 2013, etc. and install it and have the 8.5 run-time and reports run?

Thank you!

Hi Dave,

No, ASP.NET used the RDC ( craxdrt.dll ) which was retired in CR XI R2.

To be able to update to ASPX.NET format you need to use CR for VS .NET which you can download from here:


There is no direct replacement of the RDC to CR for .NET. You'll have to rewrite that part of your app.

The wiki has links with samples to get you going.
