Converting VS 205 APP with Crystal reports to VS 2008

Hello Experts,

I have a VS 2005 C# APP which uses Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005 and am converting it to VS 2008.

1. I converted the VS 2005 APP to VS 2008 on my Win &, 64 bit VS 2008 machine
2. I ran CRRedist2008_x64.msi  on myWin &, 64 bit VS 2008 machine
3. I notice that my project still references Crysatal dlls at C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\Common\2.8\managed
4. I cannot find similar dlls for the 2008 versions on the computer to change the references

Am still getting Cryustal errors (see codesnipet) and the converted project will not build.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong here??

Thanks!

I still get Crystal reports errors (see code snippet) and the APP won't build.

I notice that
