All versions of CR reports will work with any version of the SDK. Except pre-CR 8.5, format changed, reports can be read but DB and Parameters API's altered.

See this page and the Platform link for specific versions supported on OS's:

Thank you Don. Do you mean Crystal Report run time 13.0.09 can work on Crystal Report 2016 or any version of CR?

I'm a little bit confused about the compatibility, I am newbie on studying SAP products. Sorry


Version 13.0.09 is CR for VS runtime SDK, this product is full builds only and the latest version is 13.0.22.

As of CR 2011, version 14.0, CR for VS is now the only .NET SDK resource runtime for Crystal Reports Designer. There is one for BOE but basically the same thing only it can connect to BOE Servers, CR for VS cannot connect to a BOE Server.

So yes, CR for VS 13.0.xx.xxxx can use any report version, recommended though to update your reports to current versions of CR Designer, 2016 is the latest. Mostly to be platform compliant and having been tested using the latest OS's Framework versions, Browsers, etc. Check the Platform Guide on the download WIKI page.

Thanks again
