How to get Crystal Reports to recognize DLL file manually copied over

I manually copied over a DLL file, used for formulas, into the win32_x86 folder. When I create a new formula and expand "Additional Functions" I do not see the library I copied over. Is there something I need to do to get Crystal Reports to recognize the DLL?

I'm using an older version of CR (11.5.10.1263) but it is required for the database and program our company uses to generate reports.

    Hi Sean,

    It depends on the UFL and how it was built. IF it's CRUFL*.dll then register it using regsvr32.dll.

    If it's a C++ dll called U2L*.dll or U3L*.dll then it may have some dependencies on it.

    It may also require CR Designer starting up with specific framework

    Create a xml file called crw32.exe.config with this in it:

    <?xml version ="1.0"?>
    <configuration>
    <startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true" >
    <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" />
    </startup>
    </configuration>

    Best to contact the makers of the UFL and ask them what is required.
