I am moving an old VB6/Crystal7 application to VB.NET web forms. What is the best solution for me to convert all my old crystal 7 reports and what is the best solution for presenting the new crystal reports in .NET web forms? I will need to be able to pass parameters to reports and well as modify the SQL criteria in a report. Using SQL Server 2012 as database. thanks!! David

Hi David,

Update the CR runtime into VS 2010 or above from here:

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

Since CR 10 the RDC is no longer available so you must use the CR .NET Assemblies now.

Upgrading CR 7 reports to current version is a matter of opening them in CR 2011 or above, convert the DB driver to the new version and verifying each report.

Parameter API's have changed a lot also.
