Minimum requirements CR Runtime 13.0.20


I have developed an application using CRforVS 13.0.20 that create several labels created with Crystal. I want to redistribute this application in several computers. All this computers have installed the CR Runtime 13.0.20. But, in some of them, basically Windows XP SP3 with 1Gb Ram, take long time when execute "rpt.Load(reportPath.FullName)" (around 90 seconds) and also when call PrintToPrinter method.

So, there exist any minimum hardware requirement to install CR Runtime 13.0.20? Or how we can improve loading report performance on those computers?

    Does the delay happen for every report that the user tries to run or just the first one? If it's just the first one, then the delay is due to the application loading all of the required libraries. One of the things you can do is try to minimize the number of libraries in the References section of the code and the project. Just include the ones that the code requires in order to compile.

    • The other 12 .dll files are added because of dependencies within the four that you're using.

      If all of the computers have exactly the same RAM and CPU, is there a difference in which report is running and how much data it pulls? That could cause the difference.
