Crystal Reports Embedded, Re-distributable Designer?

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Is there such as thing as an embedded, re-distributable, Crystal Reports designer? I'm not talking about the report designer that can be used from within Visual Studio, but a component that I can add to an application which will allow the end user to design their own Crystal reports, even if it were a subset of the full functionality.

Taking it a step further, does there exist such a web-based component, so that it can be included in a web application?

I have asked Crystal Reports / Business Objects / SAP, but they have not yet replied, and I need to know what to tell a client. Searches on Google give hints of this perhaps existing for Windows in the past, but there do not seem to be any recent references.

Thank you.
