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!
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/
