cr2008 merge module failure-- vcredist not helping


My application is a VS 2008 VB.NET WinForms app with the CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms assembly version 12.0.2000.0. I recently upgraded to Crystal Reports 2008 with SP2 (version on Windows XP SP3. I downloaded and added cr2008sp2_mm to my deployment project. The installation fails with the following message: "Module C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Business Objects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\CEReportSource.dll failed to register. HRESULT -2147010895"

Before I run the deployment project, I run vcredist_x86.exe (version 6.00.3790.0 (srv03_rtm.030324-2048)). I believe this is c++ 2005 sp1 version. With previous computers that haven't been able to download the merge module, this did the trick.

The computer that is having the issue: WinXP SP3 framework 3.5 sp1

What else could be causing this problem?
