CR 2008 Developer Advantage licence - what do I do with it?

Hi All,

My company has purchased the CR 2008 Developer Advantage licence in order for us to publish reports on the web. I am developing the website as we speak and have installed the cr2008 runtime on the web server using the product key that came with the CR development software.

Now we have the developer advantage....what do I do with it?

Any guidance greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ludek,

    Thanks for replying.

    In the traditional licensing scenario you buy some software and it comes with a product key. When you install the software it requires the product key.

    With Developer Advantage, there is no software (and NO key). On my test environment I have used the runtime installer to install crystal and provided the CR2008 developer product key (nothing to do with advantage).

    Now when I want to install to my Production server, I will use the runtime installer again but what key do I provide? The same as my test environment??

    It's all very unclear.

    Pls help???

    Hi,

    Developer edition of Crystal products gives you access to the sdk that Crystal product use to have some of the features that are available through designer. Say for example, you have your report and you need to export it to a certain folder in a certain format. This can be done using the sdks rather than having the designer. There are many more functionality that can be achieved. For more details visit:

    Sample are here:

    Hi Ag,

    Thanks for replying.

    I know how to use CR and have developed many reports. They all work as expected even in the web on an IIS .net environment. What I don't know is what I am supposed to do with the Developer Advantage?
