The last time I checked, you needed either a CPU-based server license (*very* expensive), or named user-based CALs meaning a license per report recipient - and this included emailed reports! Crystal Reports is actually very often, very expensive to deploy! Too late now, but Reporting Services (free with SQL Server) and ActiveReports (free to deploy, cheap for development) are more robust, more flexible, and do not hit the pocket later once the app becomes useful outside small teams. Contact Crystal Decisions - and ask about both immediate and possible future deployment scenarios Crystal Reports is known as the "report writer that shall not be named" or the "Scottish Report Writer" for a reason. Chris -----Unmodified Original Message----- I created a set of crystal reports, with ASP.Net & Visual Studio, on my machine, and went to upload them onto the intranet. Then I found out there has to be crystal reports on the web server to display it. Which license would be needed? Server or Developer. According to Business Objects, http://www.businessobjects.com/products/reporting/crystalreports/licensing/details.asp there is a special right now when you buy the Developer version: Special introductory offer for Crystal Reports Server Crystal Reports Developer Edition includes an introdutory offer of five named-user licenses of Crystal Reports Server. Which has Five free named-user licenses are provided per deployment. So does this mean it can go on 5 servers or 5 people can view the report at the same time? Sorry to be so stupid about this but I'm not the one that buys server software and is aware of licensing.
