Using cr9netredist package for web server instead of RAS.
Posted on 2004-09-09
We just started developing in ASP.NET and we use Crystal Reports to export to PDF on the fly. We have Crystal Enterprise (RAS) on one of our servers, but our new ASP.NET pages are on a web server with just the cr9netredist dll's that we downloaded from crystal's site. Using that package we haven't needed to use RAS at all. We develop the reports in a full version of Crystal 9 advanced and then place them in our .net project.
My main worry or problem is that we spent all this money on Enterprise (RAS) and we aren't even using it. Does the cr9netredist package have a limit on licenses or something? We would like to continue working this way but we are worried that there has to be a catch (licenses, performance) with taking RAS out of the picture. Any help on the actual terms and conditions of cr9netredist would be helpful.
