How to use the Crystal Reports 2008 - Click Once redist?

For my co-workers i want to make a click once installation for the Crystal Report 2008 redistributable files.

So my co-wokers can browse to a website, and with click once technologie install the redistributable files.

I've searched for the redistributable files for CR2008 runtime, and found them thru

than clicking on the link and selecting for Software Product: Crystal Reports, Product version: 2008 and for software type: Utility.

Then 7 results are shown:

1 MLB Runtime

2 Merge Modules

3 Click Once

4 Redistributable Installation

5 DataDirect...

6 Visual Studion Integration Manager

7 Modules utility....

I downloaded them all, and when seeing 'Crystal Reports 2008 - Click Once', I thought that's the download I need.

Once downloaded, i unzipped the Click Once zip file, and found a bunch of directories (languages), and two files:

1 CRRuntime_12_0_mlb.msi

2 product.xml

But now I don't know what to do with this files.

I think I can make a dotnet program which does nothing, only to install the redist, but how?!?
