Crystal 8 - 9

The reports of version 8 can be seen with the 9?
Or I must install the CR8 to see them?

You can open version 8 reports with version 9, but if you save them while you have them open in version 9, you will never be able to open them in version 8 again.

If you intend to migrate your reports to version 9, than you have nothing to worry about.  I would make a backup of those version 8 reports before you start opening them up in 9 just in case.  If you don't, and you need to go back, you will have to rebuild them in CR 8.

Thks bdreed35,

Can I have both versions in the same server ?
Yes, the two version can live on the same server.  I would recommend installing version 8 first, and then version 9 second.
