Accessing reports in ASP.Net 4.0 web applications from CR Server 2008



I have deployed a couple of reports on Crystal Reports Server 2008. In the Dev environment, I have an ASP.Net 4.0 web application in which I want to show the deployed reports (on CR server) using CrystalReportViewer control.

Please share the possible ways to achieve it. I know that we will have to refer the CR Server related required assemblies in ASP.Net web application. A couple of ways which I heard of are:

1) Installing and using CR Server 2008 Client components in ASP.Net web application.

2) Installing and using Crystal Reports Server SDK on Dev machines.

3) Using Crystal Reports Web services.

Please let me know if above ways are correct. Also, which is the best way to implement such scenario?

Also, where can I find the installer for Client components of Crystal Report Server?

Do we need CR server license to install client components on Dev machines?

Thanks in advance,
