Legacy Crystal reports viewer


I am guessing i need a legacy version of crystal reports VIEWER I have no use for the full blown program. I work IT for a company that has a charter school as a client that i guess is using an older version of crystal reports. my company does not run any type of reports we just get them after they are run and only need to be able to read them. I had to swap out a PC for a user who was able to view these reports without a problem but now after i install your report viewers no matter which one i pick i get an error stating that the report was saved under an old version of crystal reports (9 or older) and that the viewer can not open it. Why would a new viewer be unable to read an older version ?

    The current version of Crystal Report Viewer 2011/2013/2016 won't be able to open the legacy crystal report you have when it is version "9 or older".

    You can download Crystal Report 2008 client software, and that is "CRYSTAL REPORTS 2008 V1 SP7 WINDOWS", 51048109.ZIP, from SAP Software download.
