ReCrystallize Server includes an Explorer View page and a Folder View page. Each serves essentially the same function but have different appearances. The Folder View page can be better suited for small screens or touch screens. Both display Crystal Reports .rpt files and other commonly used document file types including Word, Excel, and PDF. Shortcuts are available to both in the server’s Start Menu.

Click a Crystal Reports file to run the report and open it in the interactive viewer.

Clicking other file types will download the file or open the file in the browser, depending on client settings.

Absolute Paths

In addition to relative paths beneath the default folder, the Folder View and Explorer View pages accept absolute paths to a folder using either a local drive letter on the server or UNC path to a network location. For example,


would open to the Crystal folder on the web server’s drive D:. Similarly,


would open to the myFiles folder on server myFileServer.
