Hello, We are considering migrating from CR XI R2 to the new CR 2008. Our applications use the ActiveX viewer to display reports in a VC++ MFC application. We would like to use the new msi to deploy CR 2008 on client machines, (available here: http://support.businessobjects.com/downloads/runtime.asp), but as far as I can see, the provided msi package does not install the activex viewer. How should we deploy the activex viewer in these situations?Thanks,Pedro Ferreira

Hi,

I'm not sure if you're talking about the the RDC component (craxdrt.dll, craxddrt.dll, and crviewer.dll). If so, the RDC was retired with the release of CR 2008.

Crystal/BOBJ released a statement of direction on the RDC a while ago. Here's a link on their website:

I hope this helps.
