Do I have the correct CR product?


I know this may sounds like a dumb question, but I figured I'd ask anyways.

I have a client application that I'm developing in VS2008 and I have a copy of CR 2008. What I want to do is have a series of reports that are stored on a server and hosted up via an IIS server to internal users. I don't want to load CR on each of my client machines.

So I just need my client application to be able to launch the user's default browser to display the desired report.

My questions are, can I do this with CR 2008 or do I need the CR Server product? I see that CR 2008 has installed a Virtual folder in IIS but I can't seem to get it to load with out errors. Do I need to create my own ASPX project for viewing reports or can I use the files loaded by CR 2008?

As you can see I'm still trying to understand CR and how to best use it with my product.

Thanks for any help.
