Getting a type initializer error from CrystalReportViewer control in upgraded VS .NET app

I've got Crystal Reports XI Release 2, for development with Visual Studio
..NET 2005. I've taken a VS .NET 2003 WinForms application that I wrote in
C#, and upgraded it to VS .NET 2005. It has just one WinForm, and one
CrystalReportViewer control on it. After letting the upgrade wizard do its,
I attempted to run the application, however it died on the line in the
InitializeComponent() method where it was attempting to create a new
CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer control and assign it to
the CRV on the form. I got the following error:

System.TypeInitializationException was unhandled
Message="The type initializer for
'CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.ReportSourceFactory ' threw an exception."
TypeName="CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.ReportSour ceFactory"

The inner exception is:
