I need to show the thumbnail image of a Crystal Report in my Delphi 7 win32 application. The report (.rpt) was saved with the File/Summary Info/Save Preview Picture option selected. I am using the RDC from Crystal Reports Developper 10, and there seems to be no property or method to retrieve the preview image in the component. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance.

    Not sure about CR10 but this was an Enterprise version only option with CR9.

    Is there any other way to get it? I am not 100% sure but I dont think so.

    I am sure you will get some more opinions.
