Does Crystal Reports 2011 work with Windows 8?

Hi, I've been successfully running Crystal Reports 2011 on my Windows 7 machine; however, the laptop is about to die and so I purchased a new one that is running Windows 8. However, when I F5 the report to run I regularly get the error message "Crystal Reports has stopped working" and then it closes down CR.

I have tried googling this but haven't found anything specific. Any suggestions? Or do I have to try and find a Windows 7 machine?

thanks in advance,

Mark

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not too sure if CR 2011 would work on Windows 8. You can expect a Support Pack soon with support for the new OS, but for now, if the same report works on Windows 7 then I would say it's just due to incompatibility that it doesn't work on Windows 8.

    If there is an option to run CR in compatibility mode, then you may try that too.

    Hi Mark,

    What version of CR 2011 you are using?

    Also check the check box No Printer under File -> Page Setup option.

    Hi Mark,

    if you are using Crystal Reports 2011 basic version, then that vesrion is not supported with windows 8.

    It is only supported upto Windows 7.

    Are you able to create a sample report in that crystal desiner??
