modules fail to register on Vista

I am using Inno Setup to redistribute a VB 2005 application that uses Crystal Reports.  Per the instructions I got when I downloaded CrystalReportsRedist2005_x86.msm, I built a Windows Setup Project to setup an .msi file.  It installs well enough on my XP machine, but on my Vista machine, the following modules fail to register: exportmodeller.dll, cachemanager.dll, clientdoc.dll, commonobjmodel.dll, crqe.dll, localcon.dll, objectfactory.dll, sacommlayer.dll, crtslv.dll, cubedefmodel.dll, DataDefModel.dll, RptControllers.dll, requestmodel.dll, reportdefmodel.dll, saxmlserialsize.dll, UndoManager.dll.
I found a website (http://community.installshield.com/showthread.php?t=144211) which said to change the target to the sys folder.  So I went into Windows Setup Project and changed my Application Folder->Default Loaction to "[System Folder]" and now both Vista and XP give me "An error occured attempting to install Crystal Reports".

Crystal hasn't been upgraded for Vista yet with the exception of Crystal XI, Release 2.  If you are using any other version, including the one embedded in VS2005, you will have nothing but problems...

Thanks for your quick response.  I couldn't download the modules until recently, so it took me a while to confirm your solution.  Sorry about that.
