Crystal Reports Version 2008 on WIndows 10

Crystal Reports Version 2008 on WIndows 10

I upgraded by system from WIN 8 to WIN 10 and CR 2008 was installed. CR2008 was working just fine and then as of now it just freezes at startup. Is CR2008 capatible with WIN10? i have changed the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Business Objects\Suite 12.0\Crystal Reports and look for DisableCheckForUpdates and change it to a "1". I have even unistallled and reinstalled. But still hangs at Start Up. THank you for any assistance!

I unistalled CR 2008 for SAP indicated it wasnt compatable with WIN 10. I then installed CR2013 which is compatable with WIN 10. Crystal Reports 2013 did start and ran just fine. UNTIL, I started my computer and tried to start CR 2008 again - CR 2013 then just hangs at the start screen.

RE: Crystal Reports Version 2008 on WIndows 10

Just a thought. CR2008 probably writes some value that is shared with CR2013, but not compatible with 2013. Short of an uninstall and re-install (hopefully the value will overwritten), I have no other ideas.
