Problem Installing Crystal Reports XI R2 concurrently with XI R2 2005


We have a 2003 server that we have crystal reports XI R2 runtime installed and woring on it. We are trying to upgrade to a newer server, again with SErver 2003 on it.

We have .net applications running crystal reports in both .net 1.1 and .net 2.0. We were told that we have to install both the CrystalReports11_5_NET.msi and CrystalReports11_5_NET_2005.msi installation files to get them to work. the problem is that when we install one of them, the second one tells us that we already have a version installed on it and it will not install.

We had to open a case about this problem when we did the first server install and the case has since disappeared so we can't see the notes of what we had to do to get this working. I BELIEVE it was that we had to install one and then delete a registry key before we were able to install the second one to get them both working together.

I have not seen any posts listing this same problem anywhere on this site, so I would appreciate any help anyone can give me about this.
