Crystal Runtimes are components that are necessary for any software which uses or distributes Crystal Reports to function properly. There are various versions of Crystal runtimes, and each version of Crystal Reports has a different associated runtime. Our software, Crystal Reports Distributor (or CRD for short), is one such product which requires that runtimes be installed on the machine where the software resides.
REGARDING THE USE OF CRYSTAL REPORTS AND ASSOCIATED COMPONENTS. The Software does not have any Crystal Reports components included in it. The Software uses the components already existing on the Customer’s PC or server. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that, in the use of these components, the Customer complies with the Crystal Reports End User License Agreement. By using the Software, the Customer confirms and takes responsibility for ensuring the Customer obtains the correct Crystal Reports licenses for the Customer’s purposes.
