Bulk Update Crystal Reports 2013 SP5 Data Source

Hello,

We're in the process of moving our SQL server to another box again.  This means we will have to update all our Crystal reports data sources once more.  Before, we used rptInspector and that worked flawlessly.  However, this application doesn't work with our current version of Crystal reports (2013 support Pack 5). rptInspector only worked for us with CR XI R2.  

Does anyone know of another program or code script that can work with CR 2013 and offer bulk data source update?  We have over 1,200 reports and updating them one by one is not a good option.

rpt.Inspector is working on a version for CR 2013
