Patching Crystal Reports for Visual Studio

0 Kudos

I did try searching on this topic but could not find what I was looking for.

I am using Visual Studio 2015 with Crystal Reports (Engine version 13.0.3500).

How do I know which SP I am on now?

How do I apply the latest patch?

I have downloaded CRforVS13SP25MSI32_0-10010309.EXE. Do I simply run it to get to SP25?

Are there any concerns about patching / precautions to take? If something breaks, can I roll back?

Thanks in advance

The latest service pack will overwrite what you currently have installed. I'm not sure whether uninstalling will get to back to the version you currently have.

You may need to tweak your code to get the new version to work - see the wiki here: for information about what the changes are.

Also, I would make sure to download the runtime install that you're going to use when you're deploying your application. The development and runtime service packs need to be the same, so it's a good idea to download them both in case the SDK is updated while you're working on your application.
