Delphi 2006 and Crystal XI VCL problem

Former Member

I'm using Borland Delphi 2006 and want to upgrade my application from using Crystal Reports 8.5 to XI R2 (using VCL component).

Problem is when I install CR XI R2 developer edition on my development PC, then Delphi constantly reports errors when I compile application with VCL for XI u201Cerror:104 failed to obtain version Information from CRPE32.DLL u201C.

If I uninstall CR XI R2 and install CR XI, then everything works OK.

Any info on why this is happening? I would like to use CR XI R2.

Thanks and best regards,

See this thread:

Please note that you can not use VCL for CR XI r1 with CR XI r2. Also, VCL has been retired in CR XI r2. (E.G.; there is no build available for CR XI r2). As such it is not supported in CR XI r2. We do porvide a guideline on how you may be able to update the CR XI r1 VCL to CR XI r2 VCL. The guideline is in the above thread.

Hope it works for you,
