Are Crystal 2008 reports compatible with runtime version XI
Our software incorporates Crystal runtime version XI. We advise clients to purchase Crystal XI if they wish to modify our report templates.
A number of clients have complained that Crystal XI is no longer available to buy.
My query is that if we recommend Crystal 2008 and the clients modify their templates (basic reformatting edits), will these revised templates work in our application?
As far as I know, no, it won't work. While Crystal 2008 is backward compatible with Crystal XI, I don't believe the reverse is true.
That said, it's probably best to post this in the Crystal forums [here|/community [original link is broken];
