Crystal Reports 2008 Use Browser To View Reports

Under Crystal Reports 8.5 I was able to load CRViewer.dll on workstations (XP) using regsvr32  and link from my intranet site to Crystal Reports and the clients could see the reports in the browser window. I used ASP coding to link to the reports as well as pass any parameters needed. See below for example:

'give location of report
reportname = "\Reports\Test.rpt"

'include the following from Crystal
<!-- #include file="AlwaysRequiredSteps.asp" -->

'pass parameters
      Session("DetailReportFlag") = "False"


'include the following from Crystal
<!-- #include file="MoreRequiredSteps.asp" -->
<!-- #include file="SmartVieweractivex.asp" -->

I cant find out how to register the CRViewer in Wndows 7 so I am upgrading to Crystal 2008. I now have the crystalreportviewers12 folder under IIS but do not know how to call reports from either ASP pages or ASPX pages.

There is no longer a SmartVieweractivex.asp file... any samples of the easiest way to do this?

Here is one way.  I realize it isn't ASP but it may help you find the right methods.
