Crystal Reports 2011 Demo Install Error


Downloaded the trial of Crystal Reports 2011 today (installer says it is SP2) and it will not install. Searched the forums and the 'net and not finding anything that appears to be applicable to my situation, so here goes:

Windows 7 64-bit Pro SP 1, all updates

Crystal Reports 8.5 and 9.2 installed

Visual Studio 2010 Pro with all updates

RAD Studio XE2 with latest updates

Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010

I run the setup as an admin, Windows 7 compatibility checked, etc. as suggested in other posts.

I am getting a Visual C++ runtime library error "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way."

I get this initially when the installer says "Installing Deployment Unit:" and the unit listed is:,

I have a screenshot, but the above gives relevant information. If I click OK on the error, I will continuously get it for all other files and then get the pleasure of getting it again when I cancel the installation. We have been considering moving to SSRS, but wanted to give the 2011 Crystal a shot since we have several hundred reports developed in it.

Thanks in advance for any help and apologies if I missed something in my searching. Any ideas??
