Hello, we are using SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio version 13.0.20.2399 and we are trying to get the exact End Of life or End Of Maintenance dates for this specific version.

Could you please advise? Thank you

You can find End Of Life info here, same as Crystal Reports Designer:

https://help.sap.com/docs/SUPPORT_CONTENT/crystalreports/3354088411.html

CR for VS follows Crystal Reports Designer, SP 20 is very old, its up to SP 35 now.

You can get the latest here:

https://help.sap.com/docs/SUPPORT_CONTENT/crystalreports/3354091173.html

NOTE: CR end of life does extend each year for current versions, older versions will eventually have an end of life date.

SAP only supports the current version of CR for VS because it's not patched, only full builds.

SO any issues found you need to duplicate the problem in the latest release.

It's a little confusing for end of life dates on older SP's, there is nothing specific other than staying up to date...

Also, for CR Designer the cycle is 3 current patches are supported, all else require updating.

I kind of recall SP 20 was still CR 2016 days...

All I can suggest is since you are that old it is time to upgrade to the current version to take advantage of all of the current security patches and DB Clients support etc.

Thank you Don. I'm testing SP35 for my reports and I'm getting following error: "Could not load file or assembly 'log4net, Version=1.2.10.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' (Exception HRESULT: 0x80131040)".

Initially I only have installed 64 bit runtime and then 32 bit runtime but the error continues. Also I have copied the log4net.dll to the bin/debug folder with the same result.

Thank you

See this blog I wrote on upgrading: Upgrading a Visual Studio 2008->2022 .NET project with the latest CR .NET SDK packages
