CR9 conversion

How to convert a VB App from CR8.5 to CR9 RDC by chelseatech
Posted: 16 Sep 02

I assume you are using the Report Designer Component (CRAXDRT) and the Crystal Viewer (CRViewer.DLL) with VB6.

Part One- Upgrade the Viewer
1) Under components you will need to add
   Crystal Report Viewer Control 9
2) Remove the CR8.5 Crystal Viewer from your viewer form
3) Add a CR9 viewer to the form and rename it to the same name asthe control deleted above (2)
4) Remove component for the CR8.5 viewer

part Two - Upgrade CRAXDRT.DLL
5) Under Project references
untick Crystal Reports 8.5 ActiveX Designer Run Time Library
tick Crystal Reports 9 ActiveX Designer Run Time Library  

The remainder of your code shoould work with no other changes required.

Now we just need to identify which new DLL's to include in the install files (another FAQ planned for that)
