    Hello Giovanni,

    I had your thread moved to the "Legacy Application Development SDKs" forum because you're asking a development question releated to the RDC component and VB6.

    The CRViewer that is part of the RDC (Report Designer Component) has been retired. The last version to ship with the RDC component is CR XI Release 2 (v11.5). The RDC is not available in CR2008.

    This information is available in the [RDC Statement of Direction|].

    The usual migration path from VB6 and the RDC is to move to Visual Studios .NET using the Crystal Reports .NET SDK with CR2008.

    The Crystal Reports .NET (CR.NET) object model is somewhat similar to the RDC object model, however there isn't 100% parity between the two object models.

    We have quite a bit of information on our website that will help you get started with Crystal Reports and Visual Studios .NET. Here are the links:

    [SAP SDN Network|].

    The [Business Objects|] page on the SDN Network.

    The [SDK Developer Library|] - Under .NET SDK look for the "Crystal Reports .NET SDK" Developer Guide link and API Reference link.

    [Code Samples|] - This is a start page for samples - filter here to find CR.NET specific samples.

    [Additional Code Samples|] - Look for the Crystal Reports .NET SDK link.

    If you need further clarification regarding the retirement of the RDC and the CRViewer DLL please feel free to post your follow up questions to this thread.

    If you have questions about migrating to the Crystal Reports .NET SDK please post a new thread under the .NET Development - Crystal Reports forum.
