Upgrade from Crystal Reports Pro version 5


I wrote Visual Basic software to manage information in our company more than 20 years ago. I also used Crystal Reports Pro version 5 to create several database reports. It all continues to work just fine on 32 bit operating systems through Windows 10. However, 32 bit hardware is being phased out as well as associated device drivers that are supported in 32 bit Windows. This will ultimately force me to move to 64 bit operating systems. My VB software works in 64 bit Windows but Crystal Reports version 5 does not. I really don't want to re-write the VB code (as there's a lot of it) as long as it will work in modern operating systems but I need to find a migration path for my CR reports to work also. So I am looking here for advice to provide me some direction. Thanks....
