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

http://forums.sdn.sap.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2022251

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.
