I have inherited a legact web application.  It calls a COM+ dll that references some crystal report 9 libraries.  It no longer works, so I am trying to fix the issue.  I opened the report and immediately I noticed that it is Missing the Crystal Reports 9 ActiveX Designer Design and Runtime Library, also none of the dsr files will load.

I have Crystal 9 Application server installed as well as crystal reports 9.  However the dll referenced doesnt exist.  there is a 10.2 version of the dll, so I changed the reference to it.  

If I try to open a dsr file I get an error "Class {BD4B4E61-F7B8-11D0-964D-00A0C9273C2A} of control PCR2 was not a loaded control class."  So I tried to create a new DSR file and then replaced the CLSID of the new one.  The DSR file will now load, but if I try to open it I get the error "Line 2: Property OleObjectBlob in CR1 could not be set."  This referces the DSR file attempting to load the CR1.dsx file.

Any ideas on how I can fix this and rebuild the project?

YOu can't mix versions of the Crystal dlls.

What edition of CR9 do you have?

Do you have the file CRAXDRT.DLL  you can probably reference it.
