I have a development server (Windows XP) on which I installed an application that uses Crystal Reports Runtime 2008. All was well until someone else came along and installed a newer version of Business Objects (12.0). Now my application can't successfully use Crystal Reports.
Apparently Business Objects upgrades some files of which my app needs the older versions. I've learned that if I rename the Business Objects folder and reinstall RunTime, it creates a new Business Objects folder (with the older versions of the files it needs) and my app can run reports fine. If I then copy the original BO files back, it hangs. I need to figure out how to make the two coexist. Is there a way to install my 2008 runtime with custom parameters that tell it to look in a custom location for its BO files? Any ideas?
The file I'm using to install CR Runtime 2008 is CRRuntime_12_0_mlb.exe.
