Invalid Report Version


I am updating some old VBA macros that used the crystl32.ocx object to create a runtime version of a report created in Crystal 8.5. The macro I am trying to update needs to run Crystal XI reports, and the crystl32.ocx object is still available. However, when I place this object on a VBA form, it will not launch. The code does not produce an error, but the event log will show 'invalid report version'.

I have read somewhere that in Crystal XI, you can no longer use the runtime activex in the Crystal Pro version and that you must use the Designer version. Further, additional license fees are required. Can someone explain what the possibilities and the requirements are?

Much appreciated!

Cheers, Hans
