Dumps a Crystal Reports RPT file to XML. Useful for diffs.
Binary releases available on the Releases page.
Ported to C# from the original VB project
RptToXml references Crystal Reports assemblies. The easiest way to get them onto a development machine is to install the Crystal Reports Runtime from an MSI downloaded from this page. The most recent support pack of Crystal Reports 13 should work.
The solution should build with VS2012 or higher. Express editions have not been tested but should work.
Find the executable in
RptToXml/bin/<where did you build to?> after building the solution in Visual Studio.
Run the executable from the command line with
path/to/RptToXml.exe path/to/report_name.rpt path/to/output.xml
