Custom DLL's

Custom DLL's

Custom DLL's

I'm moving from Crystal 7 on a Server 2000 to Crystal 2011 version RTM on a Server 2012 R2.

One of our software vendors has provided custom DLL's to use when querying/reporting on their software to convert the dates among other things.

The DLL's have been copied to c:\windows\system32 and Crystal apparently is not recognizing them as the custom functions do not appear in the formula workshop and when attempting to run the report, they fail on the formula that calls the functionality of the DLL.

Where should I copy the DLL's to?
What is the chance of 32 bit dll's that worked on Crystal 7 working in Crystal 2011?
Other advice?


RE: Custom DLL's

If your installation of Windows Server 2012R2 is 64 bits you need to copy the dlls to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder. You need also to register them using regsvr32.exe, which is placed in the same folder
