crystal reports 2002 and 2003

where do I find the "msi" files for crystal reports 2002 and 2003, I have a visual basic application with reports 2005, however I need to test it against crystal reports '02 and '03, I cannot find any info online. Does someone know where I can download just the "CRRedist2002_x86.msi" files for 2002 and 2003.


thank you

Your VB application can use CR files from VS2002 and 2003.

You only need those files if you build the application in VS2002 or 2003.

but is not there a standalone msi available for 2002 and 2003 that I can install separately first without having to install the vb.net application?

None that I know of.  The msi's are for use with applications with the appropriate VS version.

There is no standalone viewer or application available from Crystal for the .Net version.

Why do you think you need them?

I wanted to run a test of: installing crystal reports 2002 and then my 2005 application and see if 2005 app will open 2002 crystal reports.
just a test

As far as I know it will but iot doesn't need the VS2002 msis.

Since they are for VS2002 , the VS2005 app can't use them
