      I already have crystal reports 2016 trail installed. I am trying to get this to run crystal reports from the BI platform so i don't have to purchase the server and client version. I have read a few of the posts here to install CR4E

    the crystal report has to be deployed in to repository to run it through BI platform, , first publish the crystal report to reposity , this can be done through Crystal designer , and try to run your report in BI infoview.
