Can I use Visual Studio PROFESSIONAL to DISPLAY a CR XI report?

Experts:

I do know that VS Professional comes with a bundled version of CR. I think the version is 9 or 10....?

Question: Can I somehow use VS 2005 Professional to display an ALREADY DEVELOPED CR XI report? Basically I need to give access to a CR XI report to my clients using a WEBSITE.

Can this be done, or will the entire report need to be developed WITHIN the VS Professional CR module in order for it to work?

Thanks
