Crystal Reports Versions

Visual Studio 2005

Multiple versions of Crystal Reports are available. Many of the procedures in this document are version-specific. To best use this document to your advantage, determine first which version of Crystal Reports you have installed.

To determine which version you are currently using

  1. Go to the GAC (Global Assembly Cache) at:


  2. Look for files in this assembly folder whose prefix begins with CrystalDecisions.
  3. Locate the CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine file.
    Note   If you have installed more than one version of Crystal Reports, you have multiple versions of these files in the Global Assembly Cache. The CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine file is selected, because this file is included with every version of Crystal Reports.
  4. Note the Version column shown in the window.

    This is the "Assembly version."

  5. Locate the highest number for a particular assembly.
  6. Right-click the file, select Properties, and then click the Versions tab within the Properties window.
  7. Compare the file version against the version number in the chart below.
    Note   If you are using Crystal Reports version 9.0 with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003, the maintenance release CR 9.2 (available as the CR 9.2 upgrade CD) must be installed. Crystal Decisions supports only CR 9.2 in Visual Studio .NET 2003.

    If Borland C# is installed after Visual Studio .NET 2003, it updates the assembly versions.
