We have web pages that use a Crystal reports ver 8 web module to view configurable reports of the data we have in MYSQL database. We have changed the PC (that acts as our web server) to WIn 7 and this version of Crystal will not work. We have spent hours trying to get hold of someone in Crystals support who in th eend suggested we talk to a local re-seller and their solution is to buy the latest version of Crystal that has a web module for $4000 which is simply crazy! I know many people have developed their own crystal report viewers and wanted to know how I could do this - or even better if someone knows where I could buy such a module that would allow me to run the reports through the web pages as previous

thanks in advance

It is realatively easy to write your own viewing application.  you will probably need to upgrade from CR8 to CR XI or CR 2008.
