How to distribute CR for VS2010

For several years we have used Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2008 without problems. We integrate CR in our applications in Visual C++, using the COM and the Activex control CRVIEWER. When we distribute our application, we install the CRREDIST2008_X86.MSI and we copy the CRVIEWER.DLL and CRAXDDRT.DLL to the client PC and registered doth with REGSVR32.

So far there was no problem with CR for VS 2008, but now we are migrating our applicacion to VS 2010 and we want to use CR for VS2010 as well. The application works fine in my development system wich have VS2010 and CR for VS2010 installed, but when I try to run it on the client system, it does not work.

I guess we need to install the runtime (we install the CRforVS_redist_install_32bit_13_0_3), they install successfully, and register a new CRAXDDRT.DLL (I copy it from my development system). The problem I think is when I register the CRAXDDRT.DLL, the REGSVR32, tell me an error "Can't load the module craxddrt.dll..." (translated from spanish).

I'm not sure what are wrong. I found some information in the web than for register correctly craxddrt, we need to install the merge modules. I download it (, but they are not an installer on it.

Please can somone help me?
