Upgrade from crystal report 8.5 to crystal report 2011


Hi All,

Currently we are using crystal report 8.5 (PEAPI and dictionary files) (with VB6) to generate historical data for our product. Reports can have millions of records. We are using 2-tier architecture ( our client resides on windows machine and database

- Oracle10g dedicated server- resides on linux server).

We are planning to upgrade it to CR2011(with .NET)

My understanding is :

Crystal report designed in SAP Crystal Report 2011/SAP Crystal Reports(version for Visual Studio 2010)/.NET SDK for CR2011 and developed in VS2010 will use Crystal Reports(version for Visual Studio 2010) runtime. Please comment.

Is there any way to use PE APIs in Crystal report 2011 ? If not which is the best way to upgrade ?

Please comment.
