Crystal Reports 2008 Merge Modules x86 x64


I've been looking for the latest Crystal Reports 2008 Merge Modules versions. I've downloaded from SAP the latest file but is broken. Besides I can't see any reference to x64 files

Could you tell me where can I find the latest ones?. I need both versions (x86 and x64)

Thanks in advance.

    • It is possible to have my application .NET compiled in Any CPU mode, using the Crystal 2008 merge modules assemblies in 32 ??

      the app must be compiled as 32 bit - if it is a win app. It may work if this is a web app, only because we'd be using IIS to run the process anyhow(?). But I have never tried this...

      Is there any plans to move CR 2008 merge modules to x64 ???

      - no plans for CR 2008. Perhaps the next version...

      If you must go 64 bit, your only option that I know works is CR 10.5 (Crystal Reports Basic for Visual Studio 2008) - if you are using .NET 2008, or CR 10.2 if you are using .NET 2005.

      Both of the above versions will run higher version reports, including CR 2008 - as long as you do not use new features introduced in the new versions (cascading or dynamic parameters, flash, etc.).

    Many Thanks Ludek.

    Our application is a Web application. Unfortunatelly after testing I've to tell you that Crystal Reports MergeModules do not load correctly when our web application is running in x64.

    We will have to downgrade our applications to x86, because of Crystal Reports Limitations...and force our customer to run IIS with x86 configuration. It has no sense.....

    Is there any channel to ask for a x64 compatible version of the product??. There is no sense in having an older version x64 compatible and a new one which does not support this platform.

    Anyway, thank for your help and your quick answer.!

      Thanks Robin,

      Ludek have already told me how to configure an application to run in 32 bits inside a x64 OS. We took this just a workaround, what we really need is a version of the the crystal reports 2008 merge modules for x64 OS.
