From my experience w/ the Crystal 9 Enterprise .Net libraries - bug ridden and unstable in a load-balanced environment.
We use the CR server that comes with Visual Studio professional. CR 9, I forget the exact name.
Anyone here of/use Active Reports by Data Dynamics?
We started off with CR and then didn't like the instability of it nor the new owners. Actually we didn't like the licensing scheme they came up with. We were never able to get a straight answer from them. We switched to Active Reports and have not looked back. The biggest drawback for active reports to us is its print functionality. It requires the download of an activex component . Our clients do not allow this type of mobile code but we are able to provide printing functionality via the pdf viewer it has. We are able to pregenerate our reports so the slower speed it has does not bother us. Anyone using it in a web server environment with reports exceeding the 40 page range and wanting to do this dynamically will need to use threading so the user doesn't fall to sleep.
