Does crystal 11 support RDC model ?

Hi there,

We need to upgrade our Crystal 10.0 reports to Crystal 11.0. We have used RDC COM object model to support crystal reports through our PowerBuilder GUI. I would like to know does Crystal XI support RDC COM object model ? Is it going to break our existing functionality ? Is it backeward compatible ? Are there known issues of porting of reports ?

I will really appreciate your help in this matter.

Thanks
SPS

Thanks for your help. This line answers this question :

"The RDC, the most popular of the SDKs available for Crystal Reports has been depreciated and will not ship with XI 3.0".

I would rather upgrade to CR 2008 or CR XI with .NET assemblies instead of RDC object model.

Thanks for your help again. I really apprecaite your help.
