Unable to load Designer - Visual studio 2005 - visual basic


Recent I had a strange error per following :

Could not load file or assembly 'CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner, Version=11.5.3700.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

When I open my vb's project and choose one form with Crystal Reports Viewer (version as 11.5.3700.0),

I got the above error message.

I have used Crystal reports over 8 years, and never had much problem.

I suspect this is related to the recent installation of "vcredist_x86.exe" which is vC ++ 2005 Redistributables (needed by our

indexing software).

Is anybody has the same problem ?? Any idea of how to fix it ?? Are there any hotfix available on CR's web site ??

Thanks for help.
