we have a project where we utilize the CrystalDecisions dlls with v10.5. we are moving that process to a windows 2012 R2 server. previously it is on a windows 2003 SP2.

what DLLs do we need to be compatible with that 2012 R2 box? we tried moving the application and the process failed creating the reports.

or if there are nuget packages we can pull these from that would be better yet.

Hi Chris,

CR Basic included with VS 2008 I don't believe installed those assemblies. You may be using CR 2008 assemblies.

In any case it's not supported. VS 2008 and CR Basic included with VS is no longer supported and only one patch was available and that patch is not Windows 2012 aware so it won't install.

If you are using CR 2008 it came with the BOE Assemblies but as of CR 2011 the runtime for CR is now no longer included with Crystal Reports installer.

If you are not connecting to BOE then remove those 2 enterprise assemblies.

You can download it from this WIKI:

But it does not include any BOE assemblies, for those you need to have a support contract and then you can access SMP and get the download using a secure account your Company needs to set up for you.

You can get it from here:

So if you are not connecting to BOE then remove those 2 CR Enterprise assemblies and download from the first link above. If you are wanting to connect to CE or now known as BOE then you can't, not supported on that OS.

You will need to update to BOE 4.2 and then download the BOE .NET install packages from the second link.
