Crystal Reports developer for Visual Studio

Reproducing the Issue

Try to install more then one version of CR for VS runtime onto any PC always removes old verison or indicates an newer version is installed.


The answer is no, the reason is CR for VS uses the same folder structure and dll names when installing. This is not configurable and therefore you can only have one SP installed at any given time.
