    Hi Venkat,

    Crystal Reports for Enterprise is the new designer tool that was introduced along with BI 4.0. CR 2011 on the other hand is an iteration to the CR 2008 designer tool with some new features.

    Please have a look at this Wiki for more info on the two versions:

    To download CR for Enterprise, you need an S-User ID and you can download it from

    You can download a trial version of the CR 2011 designer from the URL you've taken the above screenshot from. You need to select the 1st link in that screenshot.

    For learning Crystal Reports, I would recommend practicing on the CR 2011 designer since not all features are available in CR for Enterprise. The CR 2011 designer will eventually be replaced by CR for Enterprise, however that might not be very soon. Once you get some hands-on on the CR 2011 designer, you can slowly transition to the CR for Enterprise designer.

    Hope this helps!

    • Yes, all 32-bit applications work on 64-bit machines.

      CR can only connect to the database using 32-bit database drivers, so make sure you install 32-bit drivers for whatever database you're trying to connect to. Also make sure you create a 32-bit ODBC DSN, if you connect to the database via ODBC.
