Standalone Crystal Reports with SAP Integration without BO Enterprise/Edge


Hi everybody,

we are actually discussing the usage of Crystal Reports as standalone tool without installing a BO server environment like BO Enterprise or BO Edge Series.

In addition we want to use a SAP BI system as data source, as presented in Ingo Hilgeforts blog [BusinessObjects and SAP Part 2|] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken];.

For the data access the SAP Integration Kit must be installed.

Is the installation of the Integration Kit possible without the usage of a BO server environment?

In [part 4 of Ingo installation documentation|] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken]; he shows the example for the normal case of a SAP Integration Kit installation.

How have I to define the options during the installation of the SAP Integration Kit, if I'm using just Crystal as Standalone without a BO Enterprise Server?

Must I also perform a complete installation?

Whats with the sreen where I have to authenticate towards the CMC system? Will that screen be omitted?

Thanks for helping,
