Backward compatibility of SAP transports/ different releases BO/CR tools



is it possible to use different versions of Crystal/ Business Objects software on top of the same SAP system?

One of our customers is running Crystal Enterprise V10 for reporting of data from a SAP BW 3.5 system. We are planning to build a new application using BO Enterprise XI 3.1 with the corresponding version of BO Integration for SAP solutions.

As part of the installation of the SAP integration KIT we have to import certain transports into the SAP system.

The following transports had been imported for the use of CR v10:

K900184, Crystal Decisions personalization functions v10

K900190, Crystal Decisions Security Functions v10. Unicode compatible

K900200, Crystal Content Administration Workbench v10

Are the transports which are delivered with SAP Integration for XI3.1 backward compatible with the previous releases of BO/CR so that we can import the whole set of transports? Are there any changes to SAP objects that CRv10 uses and will it be possible to stay with the existing reporting solution based on CR even with newer version SAP objects?
