Talking with customers and monitoring the .NET Development - BOE and Crystal Reports Forums , it is obvious that there is a lot of confusion regarding Service Packs for all the supported versions of Crystal Reports;

Where to download the Service Packs?
What do the version numbers mean?
Where do Fix Packs come into this picture?
Where are the runtimes for the various Fix packs and Service Packs?
Where is the documentation for the Fix Packs and Service Packs?

And more. In this Wiki, I will try to distill all of the above and more.

What do the version numbers mean?

Up to Crystal Reports 2008, not much. Other than the higher the number, the more recent the product. With CR 2008, we have a pretty good logic to the numbering system. Lets' take version 12.1.2.957.12 is version of CR 2008. .1 tells us this is Service Pack 1, .2 tells us this is Fix Pack 1.2 applied on top of Service Pack 1. The last three of four digits - what ever - not important. So as another example, if I have version 12.3.1.684, I know I am using CR 2008, Service Pack 3, Fix Pack 3.1.

Where do Fix Packs come into this picture?

Fix Packs are released after a Service Pack. Fix Packs are not as thoroughly tested as Service Packs. Fix Packs are rolled into subsequent Service Packs, but not all Fix Packs will be in a particular Service Pack. See my blog[Crystal Reports 2008 - Version and Download information for SPs and FPs|https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports+2008+-+Version+and+Download+information+for+SPs+and+FPs] for more information.

Where are the runtimes for the various Fix packs and Service Packs?

All runtimes can be found on the[Business Objects Support Software Downloads|https://websmp230.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ)/bc/bsp/spn/bobj_download/main.htm] web page. My wiki, [Crystal Reports v. 9.1 to 12.x VS .NET Runtime Distribution & Supported Operating Systems|https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=56787567] summarizes all the runtimes and provides a link to each one. For latest update re. CR XI R1 and CR XI R2, see 'IMPORTANT UPDATE - June 3, 2011' bellow.

Where is the documentation for the Fix Packs and Service Packs?

For CR 2008, visit the[Crystal Reports 2008 Reference Service Packs, Fix Packs, Release Notes, Fixed Issues|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/index?rid=/webcontent/uuid/10e38d93-7f07-2d10-beae-e739182f8ada] web page. Also, see the blog [Resolved issues for Crystal Reports & InProc RAS SDK for VS .NET|https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=163843498].
Earlier versions of CR are a bit trickier. E.g.; to my knowledge, there is not one page where you could go and find all info on a per SP or FP bases. In some cases the documentation is actually available from the [Business Objects Support Software Downloads|https://websmp230.sap-ag.de/sap(bD1lbiZjPTAwMQ)/bc/bsp/spn/bobj_download/main.htm] () web page, so check there. And don't forget to use the search box at the top right of the SDN web pages.
