    It depends on who you are deploying, see the Licensing Doc for more info:

      Dear Don,

      We appreciate for the prompt reply, But our query is getting vague now. In order to simply this i would like to clarify our scenario as below,

      1. We have Installed Visual Studio 2017 & then Integrated the Service Pack 21 from Crystal Report Page which gives us as version of (13_0_21), CRforVS_13_0_21.exe, After this we design CR Reports on Visual Studio 2017. Once we are done with Designing we are making the service pack and deploy the same service pack to clients (Note : CRforVS_13_0_21.exe will only be installed on Developer's Machine, And We are not Deploying this on Client). This on testing phase to check which version of Crystal report is working with Visual Studio 2017.

      2. When We want to deploy our Setup to Server & Client Machines, We want to deploy "CRRuntime_32bit_13_0_21.msi" to our customers.

      So Now on basis of Above 2 points. Do we need License for SAP Crystal Report?, If yes then, from where do we can get the license and what will be its price.

    Hi Sandeep,

    If you are just deploying the reports with an application, you do not need to purchase a license. The runtime are free to distribute. The license is only for Crystal Reports do design reports.

      Hi Brian,

      As per your saying "The license is only for Crystal Reports do design reports.", I am designing reports in visual studio 2017 and deploying to my client, Do i need to purchase the license for designing reports in VS 2017?

    Understood, Does not matter if you are installing the EXE on your DEV PC or deploying your app using the MSI, it's who you are deploying/selling to that makes the difference.

    I suggest calling Sales and discussing with them.

    The info is in the License doc.
