WHich edition of CR XI do you have?

As far as I know it is not possible to use 2 versions of Crystal in a single application.

You can use the CR XI viewer to view CR8.5 files.

In my CR XI R2 I use
CR Viewer - component
C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Common\3.5\crystalreportviewers115\ActiveXControls\crviewer.dll
Run time library - reference
C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Common\3.5\bicracdrt.dll

You only need 1` and  3.  2 is actually a superset of 3 and requires extra licensing for users in some cases.

You use the same from CR XI.

Which edition of CR XI?  
You need the DEVELOPER

I believe that is done in VB6 by adding the report to the project.

I believe you will need to upgrade your version of Crystal to CR XI Release2.

I read something last night in a Crystal blog that indicated CR XI R1 (v11.0.0.xxx) doesn't work with VB6
