Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 6 (VB6)


  • Hello all,

    i started working for a Company that have a VB 6-Application and they want me to rebuild it.

    I got the sourceCode for the VB6-Project but i can't build it, 'cause there are missing Libraries from a Crystal Reports-Version.

    The missing parts are

    • Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Export Library 11.0
    • Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 11.0
    • Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Library 11.0
    • Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Run Time Library 11.0
    • Crystal Reports Common Object Model Library 11.0
    • Crystal Reports Print Control Type Library 11.0
    • Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Design and Runtime Library 11.0
    • DynamicPDF v6.0.0 Type Library

    The VB6-Application they have are from a freelancer, that didnt work for them anymore and i have no Option to get the Information i Need.

    i searched the whole web for an answer but i didnt even know which Version i exactly Need or where to get them.

    I searched for the Crystal Report Runtime 11.0 but there are many discrepancies between the answers and nothing about where to find a downloadable Version.

    (downloading is better Option but if i have to buy it, its also ok).

    Please, if anyone have the same issue or a answer/download-link or some Information what i exactly Need, i would be grateful.
