How do I upgrade from CR 8.5 in VB6 to Crystal Reports 2008 in VB6?

I have applications written in VB 6 that call on CR 8.5 reports - both external .rpt files and reports stored within the VB6 application using the embedded Crystal Reports 8.5 Designer tool.

A client wishes to upgrade to "the latest version" of CR which appears to be Crystal Reports 2008. When I downloaded the trial version of CR 2008 from Business Objects I read that I could download for free the COM Designer Tool addin(s) required by VB6 from their site. This seems to have disappeared now and I am asking the community which designer tool(s) I actually need to download and from where they may be available.

With many thanks in advance!
