Currently working on an issue in a Dev Upgrade of 7.5.4 --> 8.1 whereby some web customisation uses WebReportingClass (part of the old SLWR.dll in 7.5.4) to run & save a Crystal Report as a PDF then create an associated attachment. I understand as of 8.1, the WebReportingClass / ReportDocument Objects are not available, so I've been trying to do something similar with the Saleslogix.Reporting.API using code like the below:
var slxRpt = new SlxReporting.SlxReport();
slxRpt.Load(tempPath + "test.rpt");
slxRpt.ExportAsPdf(tempPath + "test.pdf");
However, this page errors on loading. Suggesting that I have the wrong CrystalDecisions assemblies in my wwwroot (neither come in the 8.0 or 8.1 vanilla VFS projects, as far as I can tell) or that the new reporting.api.dll references assemblies I couldn't possibly have.
"mitigation": "ErrorContent (1)",
"message": "(0): error CS1705: Assembly 'Saleslogix.Reporting.API, Version=188.8.131.524, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' uses 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine, Version=13.0.2000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' which has a higher version than referenced assembly 'CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine, Version=11.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304'.",
"source": "System.Web.Compilation.AssemblyBuilder, System.Web, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a",
My question is:
Is this a bug with the Reporting.API or has something got muddled in my install?
And if the later, where might i get the correct versions of the assemblies?

I'm going to Snapshot my VM and try installing this:
(support pack 2, seems to be the right version)
But I'm not sure this is advisable or even licensed in a live environment...

The Web Host install should be installing "SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio" version 13 Update Pack 7. The stand alone install can be downloaded from: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-7824. Choose the 32 bit MSI or since you are developing you may prefer the install executable:
[For developers: Integrates with Visual Studio]
Install Executable: http://downloads.businessobjects.com/akdlm/cr4vs2010/CRforVS_13_0_7.exe

I found that the bin folder contained some old Crystal assemblies for version 11. I'm not sure how or why they were there! Deleting those did the trick.
