Changes in This Update

This release incorporates the latest version of the Crystal Reports runtime, and corrects issues discovered since version 2.5. See article K00000553 for changes in version 2.5.

The following changes are included in this update:

Crystal Reports Runtime Update

Report Commander is updated to use version 13.0.24 of the Crystal Reports runtime from SAP.

Remember size and position of Preview window between executionsCR00007306
Project Editor gives license error when testing FTP or SFTP connectionCR00007292
Project Editor or Command Line Builder crashes when you right-click the recipient list in an e-mail distribution listCR00007297
Command Runner (adcrutil) may not produce Excel Data Only or Excel Workbook (XLSX) filesCR00007307
When you use the -exportformat=xlsrecord or -exportformat=xlsx options, the Command Runner (adcrutil) incorrectly produces the old-style Excel (97-2003) format as if you had specified -exportformat=xls.
Source file cannot be overridden when using XML data source with ADO.NET driverCR00007321

For more information see Knowledge Base article K00000559.

File selection lists are not wide enough to accommodate long namesCR00007345
The file selection lists on the E-Mail task and File Upload tasks were modified to fill all available horizontal space and to have scroll bars, to accommodate long names. Previously long names extended past the edge of the list and could not be read.
No e-mail sent if any export fails to produce outputCR00007364
If an e-mail task is configured to attach files from multiple file outputs (report exports), the e-mail is aborted if any of the outputs was not produced. This behavior was changed so that the e-mail message is sent as long as at least one of the outputs was created.
adcrutil export may fail with "access denied" error when configured to upload outputCR00007381

When using the Command Runner (adcrutil) with the options configured to upload the export file (using FTP, SFTP, or HTTP), the export may fail with a message similar to the following:

Error: Export failed: Access to the path 'C:\Windows\System32\~71acc83aa57b4523bb92708763c9166a.pdf' is denied.

This happens because Report Commander tries to write its temporary file to the wrong location in some situations, and this fails if the user running the export does not have access to the folder that is used.
