Deplyoment of Vb.net 2008 app with crystal reports

Greetings,

My application prior to adding crystal reports via Crystal report viewer was
deployed fine without errors (note: also connect to an access 07 database).

The deployment error message is :-
Unable to run or install the application.
The application requires the assembly
Microsoft.ReportViewer.ProcessingObjectModel 9.0.0.0 be installed in the
Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first.

I have the following pre-requisites set:-
Crystal Reports for visual studio 2008 (x84, x64)
Microsoft visual studio 2008 report viewer

With the option to pickup any necessary files form the application directory
ticked
Than I added the following assemblies to that area (almost in a kitchen sink
approach!)
Microsoft.ReportViewer.Common.dll
Microsoft.ReportViewer.WinForms.dll
CrystalDecisions.shared.dll
CrystalDecisions.Reportsource.dll
CrystalDecisions.Data.AdoDoNetInterop.dll
ReportViewer.exe

I specifically added the ReportViewer.exe after I got the error message as I
believe this would install the
Microsoft.Report.Viewer.ProcessingObjectModel.

Can anyone please help me resolve this and if possible explain why this is
happening and if there are things I've added that I don't need?

P.S Thanks to those who have assisted in my other questions :)

Thanks
Rob

you shouldn't need reportviewer.exe that is for reporting services (not
crystal reports) and any libraries that come from Microsoft.Report are also
not needed for crystal reports as they are for reporting services (MS's
alternative to crystal)

Thanks, I looked at my project references and upon refreshing unused
references it confirmed they weren't needed.

No idea what lead me to the conclusion they were, odd anyway, thanks again.
