VB.Net 2008 Application with Crystal Reports always prompts to Convert Project

Every time I open my Visual Studio (VB.NET) project I am prompted to Convert my Crystal Reports 2008 to the newest version.   It Reads:

CRYSTAL REPORTS 2008

We have detected that your solution was created using an older or unknown version of Crystal Reports.   You can convert it to Crystal Reports 2008.  If you choose not to convert, some design time features may not work properly.

Right now everything works just fine.  My deployment is a ClickOnce and changing any .dlls that subsequently have to be pushed to my 100 workstations makes be a bit nervous.

Anyone done this before?  Any experience with the 'upgrade'?

I have upgraded without any problems.  Just don't forget to include any new/updated .dll's on your publish screen in vb.net.  Do a backup first of course.

Thanks EYoung.... How do you discover which are the new .dllls?

EYoungCommented:
In the Resources tab in your vb.net Properties window, click on the Add button and look through the Crystal Reports .dll's.  That assumes CR 2008 is installed on your development computer.

One other note.  If you are new to CR, then you might consider eventually moving over to Microsoft's SSRS reporting language.  It offers most of the features of CR and none of the .dll problems.
