Crystal Report 11, List of Runtime DLLs, Runtime.hlp File

I am using Crystal Report 11 with my Delphi 7 application.

I need the list of runtime dlls which I will need to distribute with my application.

The Help file which comes with the Delphi 7 VCL Component (UCRPE32.hlp) says :


check RUNTIME.HLP in the Program Files\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Developer Files\Help folder

and make sure you have all the files.


I could not find the RUNTIME.HLP file in any folder/subfolders on the machine where Crystal Report 11 has been installed.

Can somebody tell me where I can find RUNTIME.HLP file or the list of runtime DLLs which is required to be distributed

along with my application(which is written in Delphi 7).

Thanks in advance

    Hello Ramesh,

    Business Objects does not support manual deployment of their runtime files. This started with the release of CR XI (v11.0). Please see [Business Objects Note 1218571|] - How to distribute the Report Designer Component (RDC) in Crystal Reports XI for more information.

    You may also want to review the RDC deployment article - [Creating an RDC Distribution Package|] - that can be found on the SAP web site as well.

    The RDC merge modules do not include the CRPE32.dll. Since you're using the VCL you'll probably have to add that file manually to your deployment package.

    The merge module links in these articles have probably changed. Go to the [Business Objects Support Software Download|] page to find the RDC merge modules.

    Change the Selection Criteria to this:

    Software Product: Crystal Reports

    Product Version: XI, XI Release 1, or XI Release 2 (depending on your version of Crystal Reports)

    Software Type: Utility

    You should also be aware of the fact that the VCL is not being updated any longer. I think the XI (v11.0) version is the last one that will be available. Additionally, the Report Designer Component (RDC) has been retired with the release of CR 2008. Going forward you'll have to migrate to .NET SDK or the Crystal Report Java SDK.

    I hope this helps,
