Accessing Crystal XI by Default


We have two versions of Crystal Reports installed on a computer - Crystal XI (crw32.exe, installed on 5/4/2008 to C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\Crystal Reports 11.5) and Crystal for Peachtree (crw.exe, installed on 9/27/2008 to C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86) This problem comes when I open a report, it accesses Crystal for Peachtree but I need it to access Crystal XI by default.
I've gone into Control Panel>Default Programs>Associate File Type with Program and pointed the default program to Crystal XI but it still opens in Crystal for Peachtree. I've also modified the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.rpt and edited the OpenWithList but all to no avail. How do I fix it so it opens Crystal XI by default? We are running server 2008.

Thank you,

Patrick Rose
