Crystal Reports Version 8.5 reports migrate into a VB.Net Windows Form application

I was able to download the Crystal ActivieX Report Viewer Library 13.0 and add the viewer to a Windows Form within VS2012. I was then also able to open up a Crystal Report created within version 8.5 with what seems to be everything working except ... The TextObjects that exist for the Header and Footer text have an UP and DOWN arrow control placed directly to the right of the TextObject. I am not sure how they are getting added. I have messed with all the Report Viewer properties, even turning everything off, looked at the reports within Crystal Reports version 8.5 (there is nothing next to the TextObjects), tried a number of things concerning drilling down (being able to drill down is not needed) and can't figure out how to get rid of the UP and DOWN arrows. I have attached a picture of what the report looks like within the report viewer. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

CR 8.5 is not compatible with any version of CR or SDK's above version 9.

Open all of your reports In CR 2016 and Set Location using the update DB drivers and preview and save them.

Then test again
