Crystal Reports location in the Windows application


I'd created several C# Web applications with the Crystal reports 2008. But this is the first time that I'm creating a Windows application with Crystal reports. In fact I'm working almost exclusively with the Web application, so I don't have much experience with Windows (VS 2005).

So my question is - what is the right place to put Crystal reports in Windows application, and how should I refer to them?

In the Web application I could put the reports, for instance, to the Reports folder in the root of the application, then to refer to them this way:

sReportPath = Server.MapPath("../Reports/Payout2.rpt");

If I do the same in Windows application and use something like this:

sReportPath = Path.GetFullPath("Reports

it will give me the absolute path to the report. But how it would work after I install the application to the user's computers?

I would appreciate your suggestions. This should be a simple question for anyone who works with the Windows applications, but I'm pretty new to this.

Thank you,
