Not true.  You can use Crystal versions up to CR XI R2 with VB6.  The 2 new versions (CR2008 and 2011) don't support .COM

Here is a simple example

That error indicates you don't have a Crystal Report included with the application that is named CrystalReport2

Look in the file tree.  There should be a DSR that is named CrystalReport2

Do you have a stand-alone version of Crystal or is this the version that was included with VB6?

Yes I have DSR files but I can't added to the application

Because when I try to load dsr files I get error message

I haven't used that method in a few years.  I don't recall eactly how you add (or if you can) a DSR to the project.  I recall adding the RPT files through a right click on the file tree and clicking ADD.

One of the options was the report file.

I just tried it with CR XI.

I created a new VB application
Click PROJECT  --> ADD CRYSTAL REPORTS 11.5
I get an invalid keycode  but it should prompt either for an existing report file or to create a new report.

What version of Crystal do you have?  You indicated CR9.1.

To work with VB6 you need a standalone version of Crystal or the version4.6 that comes with VB6.

The only way to get CR v9 is to purchase it though it may no longer be available.

I think CR9.1 came with VS2002 and it is strictly .Net so it won't work with VB6.

SAP used to have older versions of Crystal available on their site.  CR9 was available.
I just checked and it is no longer available from the site.  You might contact them to see if you can get a copy.

As you can tell from the VS2002 using CR9.1, CR9 is about 10 years old and is no longer supported by SAP/Crystal.

Third-party resellers may have copies they can sell.
