There are at least three 'flavors' of the Crystal Reports Designer:

  1. The 'classic' stand-alone designer. This includes all versions of Crystal Reports pre version 9.x as well as Crystal Reports 10.x, 11.0.x, 11.5.x, 12.0.x, and 14.x.
  2. SAP Crystal Reports that bundle with Visual Studio .NET. This includes version 9.1.x (bundled with VS 2001 and VS 2002), 10.2.x (bundled with VS 2005), 10.5.x (bundled with VS 2008) and 13.x (a free download for VS 2010 and 2012 (support for VS 2013 coming end of Q1 2014).
  3. SAP Crystal Reports For Enterprise, version 14.x

The samples listed in this document were created in the 'classic' stand-alone designers. As the designer in the Visual Studio bundles is not fully featured, some of the design steps may not be applicable to those versions. Note that this is for the design steps only. A report created in the stand-alone designer will run with no issues in a runtime application. However, reports taking advantage of new features in later versions of Crystal Reports will obviously not function in older versions of Crystal Reports Designer or runtime applications. E.g.; dynamic or cascading parameters will not work in CR 10.x as these features were introduced in later version of Crystal Reports. Similarly, reports created in SAP Crystal Reports For Enterprise will not work at all in any other flavor of Crystal Reports - be it the classic stand-alone version or the Visual Studio Bundles.
