You'd ask your support team or your account manager for the download link I think. From memory crystal server doesn't have it's own editing features, you use the crystal reports designer to do that (I think the standards for this is1 concurrent editing license). For Crystal Server publishing the reports on the web, the 5 concurrent licenses are for people to be able to logon to the separate web site and access the existing reportspublished to them.
I suspect the queen of crystal herself will pop up soon to expand on this :-)
For what you say I assume there is specific a LANDesk Crystal Report Server and designer software, and only this software must be installed in order to be activated with the LANDesk provided licenses included in LDSD 7.5 sp1. Am I right?
two parts to my answer .....
1. Yes there is a download and license for crystal server and a separate download and license for crystal reports.
2. You don't need to install crystal server to run crystal reports from within LANDesk. LANDesk comes with a runtime library that enables any analyst running console to run up some crystal reports that have been produced/configured by the administrator who does pretty much need to use crystal reports. There is documentation and articles on how to do this. You only need crystal server if you want to have a separate web site that people can log into outside of LANDesk and see reports. You may never need to do that. Some of my clients use crystal server because they have some very hefty reports which need a lot of engine power and they don't want to run those from the desktop. Most reports don't need this power and I think the majority of customers don't need to install crystal server (but it's handy to have).
