Hi all,

Till recently I was using CR 7.0 to create reports and use crystl32.ocx control in VB to call the report.  We've now upgraded to CR 10 but I can't find the control.  How do I go about running reports from VB?

Thanks!

Adi,

Crystal hasn't supported the ocx for a while - version 8.5 was the last to support it.  You're going to need to use the RDC instead which will be somewhat of a change for you but not too bad and the benefit is that you have more control available to you with RDC then the ocx ever allowed.

Business Objects has published a migration guide for moving from ocx to rdc which should be helpful: http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/TechnicalPapers/cr9_ocx_to_rdc.pdf.asp

Adi,

One thing I forgot to mention - you hopefully have upgraded to the advanced or developer edition of CR10 as these are the only editions that include the RDC components.  If you have standard or professional edition of CR10 then you are going to need a higher edition to use RDC.

Version comparison here for your reference: http://www.businessobjects.com/global/pdf/products/crystalreports/cr10_feat_ver_ed.pdf

In that case use the migration guide I gave you.  It's actually written for CR9 but will serve you well with CR10 also.

Good luck,

Hi frodoman,

I have a similar question, but in my case I installed Crystal Reports Pro 8.5 (selecting the typical installation), but when I tried to open the project that I need to support, I got the error that Crystl32.ocx wasn't found. I searched the the Winnt/system32 first and then the whole hard drive, but the ocx was not installed.

My thought was that 8.5 doens't install that OCX anymore, but reading your answer above you said that 8.5 is the last one to have it.

Can be that the Pro version doesn't have it, or instead that I should have picked custom instead of the typical installation I choose when installing?

Your help would be very appreciated, because I need to get this project to run ASAP.

Thanks!

gporta,

You should really post your own question instead of tailing onto a closed one.  But, quick answer as far as I know the ocx was included w/ all versions of Crystal 8.5 - I don't recall the install but you can probably just copy it from the CD and use regsvr32 to manually register it.
