    This topic explains how to upgrade your project references (.dlls) in your project. ActiveReports 16 does not support references to previous versions, so you need to remove the old references and add new ones.

    To upgrade your references

    1. In Visual Studio, open an existing ActiveReports project.
    2. In the Project Explorer, expand the References node, and remove the old references.
      Here are the ActiveReports version numbers by product name.

      ActiveReports 6 6.x.x.xxxx
      ActiveReports 7 7.x.x.xxxx
