Hi!

We have a hosted Outsystems Cloud enterprise solution and I want to use Crystal Report.
Can someone tell me how to install the runtimes? 
And how to set up the database connection?

Thanks in advance!
Martin
Hi Martin.

If you have a aPaaS solution you can't because you don't have access to the machine to install the CR Runtime.
You can only install the runtime in a VPS solution or in Premise.

If you want to use Crystal Reports on OutSystems Enterprise aPaaS I suggest you use Crystal Reports from a web service provided by another server.
For cloud versions of Outsystems I have used Crystal Reports in combination with web services, eliminating the need for this extension and thus the installation of any server software.  A detailed discussion of this solution can be found here - http://www.outsystems.com/forums/discussion/11305/personal-edition-and-crystal-reports/
