DeleteGroup API not part of free runtime licence Crystal 8.5

I would like to call the Report.DeleteGroup function of the Crystal CRAXDRT object (v 8.5) however when I do so I get a message that says : You are using an API that is not part of the free runtime licence agreement.  Before distributing this application, you must purchase a licence from Seagate Software.

I've looked on their website to see if I can find out what I need but as 8.5 is no longer supported that is proving difficult.  Can anybody tell me what I need to get hold of.

So far as I know you simply need to purchase the runtime licenses for CRAXDDRT.  Crystal may be able to help you.

I was under the impression that CRAXDRT was royalty free and the royalty required calls were all in CRAXDDRT.

Look at

Read the paragraph about Royalty Required APIs.

Call BO at the numbers on page.  A reseller may still have runtime licenses.

I didn't get much joy with Crystal - they pointed me here... http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2008905.asp but by this time I'd decided to handle it a different way.  I simply modified the data set to return a single ID instead of different ones when the group in question was not to be shown.. that way I only had one first level group and my subsequent groups displayed correctly.
