For those of you in the Linux world, Business Objects has released a special preview edition of their XI Viewer that is designed for Linux. Keep in mind that this viewer, like the original edition (CR Viewer XI) will not allow you to run/refresh a report. You can only view reports that have saved data. While all of the commercial viewers can run and refresh the data of a Crystal Report, I am not yet aware of any of them that will run in Linux. And this one is free.
This preview edition can no longer be found on the website of Business Objects/SAP, however I still have it and I’ve created a convenient .deb package for it. Since others may stumble onto this page I thought I’d share. Download available at http://www.easy-share.com/1909061199/crystalreportsviewer-12.0.1.r250_i386.deb
