Can I get the Version a Crystal Report Was Designed Against?


I'm working on a web application developed in C# using the Crystal Reports runtime 10.5 that came with Visual Studio.

What I am trying to do is to check the version of a Report File that the application is trying to run before actually running it.

So that a Report written in Crystal Reports 11 can be flagged as being potentially incompatiable (as it may contain new features not supported by the runtime).

Is there any way to get this version number in C# code?

Any help would be much appreciated.

There is no way to tell within the report designer or the properties of an rpt file what version the report was created in that I can find other than manually adding a comment in the Summary Info of the report.

You may want to repost this question in the Business Objects SDK Application Development > .Net forum to see if there is a way of getting the version through code though.
