CR XI Release 2 Merge Modules


I have the Crystal Reports XI Developer Edition CDs. I believe these install Crystal Reports XI Release 1. I updated this to XI Release 2. Would it be possible to integrate the XI Release 2 Crystal Viewer component into a C# application using Visual Studios 2008? I know Release 1 was restricted to .NET Framework 1.1 and thus no higher version of Visual Studios 2003 could be used. What .NET Framework does Release 2 libraries utilize? (Our application uses fileshare functions across the network, so I need to know which .NET Framework version is used so I can set up the .NET Security using caspol.exe.) If I can use the Release 2 Viewer in Visual Studios 2008, what merge modules should I be using to install the required dlls on client machines? I've read I need CrystalReports11_5_maps.msm and CrystalReports11_5_NET.msm. Are these the only two merge modules i need? Our application also does not use geographic maps, so would we need CrystalReports11_5_maps.msm? Additionally, if we can use the Viewer in Visual Studios 2008, where can I obtain the most up-to-date merge module files for my .NET application deployment? Thanks!
