I need wrapper which exposes the viewer APIs of Crystal Reports 2011 (CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports Namespaces) as COM (ActiveX) Object. The ActiveX will be integrated in a Visual Studio 2005 MFC Project.
The wrapper ActiveX must have the same methods as the CRViewer.dll which is included in Crystal Reports 2008.
Methods needed
- Logon
- Passing parameters
- Preview Report
- Print Report

Good luck.

According to this discussion from SAP/Crystal there is no plan to build an SDK for CR2011.  You can use the SDK from VS2010

Also NO version after CR XI is licensed for use in COM applications.
CR2008, CR 4 VS2010, and CR2011 explicitly state in the EULA that they are not to be used in COM applications.

At least one of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports viewers listed at http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html provides a command line API that includes your desired options (login, parameters, preview, print) and more.
