Crystal Report

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

One of the most popular reporting tools is Crystal Report (CR 4.6).

In Visual Basic 5.0 was installed automatically, but not in version 6.0.

However, it is always available in Visual Studio (CD # 3) and Visual Basic (CD # 1).

In CD, the English version of CR4.6 is present in the folder:


but, at least for the Italian version, there is also a localized version in the folder:


Probably this will be true for all localized versions of Microsoft Visual Studio

and Microsoft Visual Basic, but I don't know the folder name for any localized version.


Note: if someone owns the product localized in other languages and want the program

to enable the CR 4.6 to install in their own language then it should send the full

path of the CD that contains the localized version.


If know other problems with different localizations contact me (via Forum) to explain

the problem, I will try to solve it.

The setup of the Italian version contains a bug (never corrected by Microsoft) that prevents a successful installation.
