Migrating from Free to Standard

If you purchased the Standard version of Crystal Delivery, you do not need to do anything.  Crystal Delivery Standard installs over the free version which means your reports and settings will all be available to you automatically.

Migrating from Free/Standard to Pro

If you were already running Crystal Delivery Free or Crystal Delivery Standard and you would like to move your report settings to Crystal Delivery Pro, you will need to copy over the Crystal Delivery database file to a new location as shown below:


  1. Exit/close Crystal Delivery
  2. Start > Run > services.msc > Select "Crystal Delivery" > Click Stop
  3. After installing Pro,  copy the .sdf file from the following location:
    C:\Users\<<Your User>>\AppData\Roaming\Crystal Delivery\crystaldb.sdf

  4. Paste the .sdf file to the following location:
    C:\ProgramData\Crystal Delivery\crystaldb.sdf

  5. Start > Run > services.msc > Select "Crystal Delivery" > Click Start

    Pro should now have your settings and report available when you open it up.
