Crystal Reports XI and SAP Crystal Reports 2013


I'm developing Windows-services for different customers, creating several reports automatically. These reports (rpt-files) had been created with CR9 and CR XI.

Now one customer wants to have an export of "XLSX". So I think to switch to SAP Crystal Report 2013.

Now our questions: is it possible to have CrystalReportXIRev2SP3 and CRforVS_13_0_22 in parallel installed?

Are the "old" reports (*.rpt-files) campatibel with CR2013?

Where I can find an API of CrystalReport 2013? What is the implementierung for getting the Export of XLSX? What is the correct "CRExportFormatType" (crEFTExcel???)?

These are the installations of my computer:
Operating system: Windows 10 Pro
IDE: Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, Version 10.0.40219.1 SP1Rel
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.02558 SP1Rel

Thanks in advance
