Can any one tell me from where I can find free download of crystal report 8.5


I am a computer operation and using a software with the name Everest Advance 2.0.  I need to modify the a report which is made with the Crystal Report 8.5  

Can anyone tell me from where I can download the Crystal Report 8.5 free (as the software cost is too high) to help me just modifying a report.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


   If this is commerical software, then it is against the site policy to post illegal download address.
You should ask if there is any free software can edit Crystal Report 8.5 files.

Hello Priyanka,

You can download Crystal Reports 10.0 30 day evaluation version from . Note that you would have to register at the site (registration is free). You would need to provide a valid email address cuz your trial software key would be emailed to you at this address. You would also need to enter in a "non-free" (non hotmail, yahoo, rediff) type address. Note that its a fully functional version of Crystal reports 10, which would ofcourse let you edit the report made with version 8.5 . Note that althouh the trail download is free and fully functional, you would still need to agree to their licensing agreement.

Regards and Good Luck!

Thanks again for your support

Priyanka...? So which answer worked out for you ? I told you the same thing, about accepting the licensing terms of the agreement plus told you how and where to download what you wanted ? Just curious as to why my answer did not get accepted ? Were you forced to accept from a Moderator ??
