Hi Experts,

I just want to ask you guys if the Crystal 8/8.5 VCL will work under Delphi 6.
We are planning to move to D6 from D5 in a few weeks but I'm still worried that most of the components we have for D5 (like the crystal vcl) won't run under D6.
 
Will you please inform me further?
 
Thanks in advance,

Hi zerobro,

Crystal Decisions has not yet released an official version of the Crystal Reports VCL component for Delphi 6.  But installing the component is not difficult.
Below is a PDF file that contains an 8-step instruction sheet for you to be able to have the VCL work under D6.

Get it here:

You can also install CR VCL 7 unto Delphi 6. Just take a look on the link below:

Goodluck,
jrmn
