Crystal Reports File Format
I'm interested in finding out the actual file format Crystal uses. I would like to develop an application that will allow me to pass as parameters the database provider and possibly table name and other things and modify the report file. This would be done in a batch mode for moving reports from test to production environments.
What I'm looking for is a file layout like you would see for that of a GIF or BMP graphics file.

No, no. I suppose in some way, RAS has by now become sort of a misnomer. You can use the APIs with Crystal Server, but you can also create windows or web apps apps using the RAS SDK, no Crystal Server needed. The server will run inproc, but you don't have to worry about that. Same runtime as for CR SDK when it comes to deployment too. Easy.
