I'm attempting to upgrade my current Crystal Export application from CR XI with Classic ASP to CR 2008 with ASP.NET and am in need of some assistance.
OLD APPLICATION - ENVIRONMENT
CR XI Developer Edition
VB project references "Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Run Time Library 11.0" (...\Business Objects\3.0\bin\craxdrt.dll)
and makes use of the following objects:
I created my own ActiveX DLL that was installed on the Web Server (IIS).
OLD APPLICATION - EXAMPLE
Classic ASP would create an object (Server.CreateObject("WebCrystalReport.RptExporter11")).
Based on some criteria, a report (RPT) would be pulled from the database and opened.
A number of RPT parameters would be passed to the object and updated in the report.
The report would then be run-exported to PDF, and the PDF would be streamed to the user.
NEW APPLICATION - ENVIRONMENT
Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition
CR 2008 (Full Edition; not what was included with VS)
