Crystal Reports 8.5 & Windows 2008

We currently have several reports developed in Crystal Reports 8.5 with a ASP calling the reports.  We are upgrading our server to Windows 2008 64-bit edition.  

I have configured the IIS server, installed the Crystal Reports 8.5 runtime on the server, registered craxdrt.dll within Component Services (32-bit version).  

When I run the report the Crystal Reports ActiveXViewer works and it displays, yet the report never actually displays.  All the code has previously worked under Windows 2000, w/o problems.  

From what I can tell this session variable is never seems to be set:
Set session("oApp") = Server.CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application")

There are no errors, to tell me things are not working.  Does anyone have suggestions of something I might be overlooking?

The main issue is the RDC (craxdrt) is not supported on Windows Server 2008 and they don't plan to make it work on it.  This is even true for the CR XI version of the RDC.
