Performing a Silent Installation of Logicity



We are deploying Logicity to a lot of PCs in our environment.  Is there a good way to include the license information with our SCCM install? We would love to find a way to install and configure Logicity with our license information, so the users don't need to have any interaction during the setup process.

Solving Compatibility Issues between Crystal Reports and Logicity

logicity-blog-compatibility-crystal-reports-logicityLogicity uses the native runtimes that come straight from SAP Crystal Reports, which means that sometimes issues arise when using Logicity and Crystal Reports on the same machine.

The Issue

We recently had a customer upgrade their Crystal Reports software from version 2008 to 2013. They received the following error when trying to run old RRD files.

Could NOT load the report.

Email Crystal Reports Automatically using Office 365 and Logicity

One of the most popular features of Logicity is the ability to schedule Crystal Reports and then automatically email them to other people.  With the continual migration of enterprise services from the data center to the cloud, it make sense that we are being asked how well Logicity can handle this change.

One of our users is currently migrating their e-mail from Exchange Server to Office365.  Their ERP system needs to have Crystal Reports email automation, automatically sending reports via email throughout the day.  Logicity performed "extremely well via Exchange Server".  However, they recognized that Office 365 requires that emails be sent with Transport Layer Security.  According to Microsoft,

"Customer access to services provided over the Internet originates from users’ Internet-enabled locations and ends at a Microsoft data center. These connections are encrypted using industry-standard transport layer security (TLS)/ SSL. The use of TLS/SSL establishes a highly secure client-to-server connection to help provide data confidentiality and integrity between the desktop and the data center."    


Does Logicity provide the ability to schedule and email Crystal Reports through Office 365?
