Crystal Reports Redistributable package for XI R2

Hi, I have a web application on my development box where I'm displaying a Crystal Report.  The report renders correctly on my development box (where I have a full version of Crystal Report installed XI R2). When I deploy it to my production server the CR throws an assembly error.

I have read that I need to install the CR redistributable package on my production server; however  I have two files for this on my machine and I'm not sure which package to install on my production server.

I have two in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\CrystalReports
One is called "CRRedist2005_x86.msi' and the other is called "CrystalRedist115_x86.msi"

Does anyone know which one is the correct one?

Also, I currently have a web application on my production server that is using a different version of Crystal.  If I install the redistributable on the server that is for a higher version of Crystal is it going to mess up my older web application?

CrystalRedist115_x86.msi is for CR XI R2

CRRedist2005_x86.msi is for the version of c\Crystal that comes with VS 2005

Which version is used for the reports?
