I have a window service that's written in vb.net 2003  and it's using crystal reports active x designer runtime library(CRAXDRT). to access the objects on the report. The reports are within the solution file. We are trying to upgrade the vb.net to vb.net2010 and the crystal reports files to crystal reports2008. I understand that Crystal 2008 no longer ships with CRAXDRT. What I am asking is what is the alternatives for accessing the reporting objects withing the 2008 .net framework or what is the other alternative for acheiving this?

Thank you,
Mo

the above is for upgrading to Crystal 11 which still has the CRAXDRT library, Do you happen to have an example upgrading to Crystal 2008.

I don't have an example.

It should be close to what you need for upgrading to the CR 2008 assemblies.
