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

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/businessobjects-downloads

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?!?
