Failed to create designer - Crystal reports viewer

I do not see CrystalReportsViewer, CyrstalReportsSource, etc. listed in the toolbox. When I add these controls from the respective .dll files, I get the following error:

Failed to create ToolBoxItem of type:CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner.ReportToolBoxItem. CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner

If I add these controls via code on my .aspx page's source, I see the following error in the CrystalReportViewer control:

Failed to create designer: CrystalDecisions.Web...(the path for the control is listed here).


This is the latest in a long LONG string of errors I have got with CRVS2010. I actually had to uninstall every older version of VS and Crystal reports just to get to this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated....


Edit: After adding CrystalReports.VSDesigner.resources.dll, I no longer get an error while adding controls to the toolbox. However, the controls themselves still give me the "Failed to create designer" error when I add them to my page.
