Static Parameters - Default Values Not Showing On Crystal Server

First, I create a basic report with static parameters. Then I assign default values to the parameters. When I run the report in the Crystal Developer, a window pops up and I see my parameters with the default values assigned. At this point, if I run the report, it runs as expected and uses the default parameter values.

However... if I install this same report on the Crystal Server, select 'Properties' > 'Default Settings' > 'Parameters', I see my parameters but I don't see their default values, yet if I select 'View', then a window pops up and I see my parameters and their default values.

I guess I have the following questions:

1. What's the difference between 'Viewing' and 'Running' a report on the Crystal Server?

2. Why don't I see the parameter default values when I select 'Properties' > 'Default Settings' > 'Parameters' in the Crystal Server?

I see the same behavior whether I use CR Developer XI or 2008. The reports are being run on Crystal Server 2008.
