Unmanaged version of Crystal Reports for 64-bit MFC application

Hi, We developed an application in about the year 2000 which was an MFC application. This 32-bit application has been used over the years with a Crystal Reports(crpe32.dll, crpe32m.lib, and supporting header files), which I am assuming was the SDK. So recently we have converted this application to 64-bit to satisfy our customer requests. So my question ... is there a 64-bit unmanaged version of this DLL and LIB? We would like to have Crystal Reports on our 64-bit version. If not, does anybody have any suggestions for us moving forward.

Thanks, Tom

    Hi Tom,

    No, CRPE32 as a reporting SDK has not been supported since CR 10. You likely used the last version, there was no 64 bit version, actually there is but you are no longer licensed to distribute it as is. See below for 64 bit options.

    Only option now is to use Java or CR for VS .NET SDK's

    You can get if here:

    https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

    It will work in a Managed C++ app but not many samples available:

    Also does include a 64 bit crpe32.dll and .NET runtime.

    See this link for the latest Licensing Doc:
