Crystal Reports Migration from 11.0.0.89327 to CR 2008 sp3 (12.3.0.601)

Crystal Reports Migration from 11.0.0.89327 to  CR 2008 sp3 (12.3.0.601)

Hi,

we have project to migrate all our reports from CR 11 to CR 2008 sp3. it is a very tight schedule.

when we did the migration from CR 8.5 to CR 11 and have used the following dlls in order to invoke the reports from my application exe.

1)crpe32.dll

2)craxdrt.dll

3)MFCANS32.dll version 3.2

4) crdb_odbc.dll version 11

it was completed successfully. But now CR 11 is again EOL. So we need to do the migration from CR 11 to CR 2008 sp3.

1) is there any euqivalent dlls which are compitable with my application exe?

we have started working like as below:

a) Uninstall CR 11 from windows 2003 server and Install CR2008 sp3 s/w into it.

b) Opened and Refreshed reports with CR2008  and saved it

c) Kept same report into our application exec folder and removed all dlls which are related to CR11 then we are trying to call my application exe it was not executed as expected it was encountered an warning that some dlls are missing So inorder to solve this issue we have taken all required dlls ( from CR2008-C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86) which it asked by my exe and kept into that folder.

FYI.

pvlocale-1-0.dll

xerces-c_2_7.dll

libOCAHelperw-4-0.dll

fssl-1-2-1-3.dll

ebus-3-3-2-6.dll

etc-1-0-12-5.dll

cxlibw-4-0.dll

boezlib.dll

TraceLog.dll

cslibu-3-0.dll

Xalan-C_1_10.dll

XalanMessages_1_10.DLL

icuuc30.dll

icudt30.dll

icuin30.dll

d) lastly my application exe has worked as expected but when i am invoking the report through my application exe it encountered an error that "The user function manager DLL (ufmanager.dll) could not be found" So i have replaced older with new dll (ufmanager.dll- 12.3.0.601)  even if it has thrown as same error what might be cause?. Kindly help on this........ I appreciate if you could help on this. I tried upto all possible cases but no result same error.

FYI:

My Exe has built using the visual studio 2003 and .NET frame work 1.1

Far Point spread 1.1

Thanks and Regards,

Sridhar.

No, crpe32.dll is not supported since version 9. Doesn't matter you are using it in the backend, you CAN NOT use it anymore.

Update ALL of your processes to CR .NET Assemblies.

Try the samples on the Overview tab.
