System.IO.PathTooLongException when installing JetBrains ReSharper 6.1 build 6.1.37.86 in VS 2011 Developer Preview

I realize that ReSharper 6.1 for Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview is not supported, so if nobody has the answer for the following issue, I'll understand.

I attempted to install ReSharper.v6.1.37.86.vs11.0.vsix into Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview and received the following error (twice, so it wasn't one-time fluke):

Is there a way to fix this issue?  If so, how?

Hello
     What's the full path of Visual Studio installation and full path to .vsix file on your machine? Thank you!

The path to the Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview executable is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe

The path to the ReSharper .vsix file is:

C:\downloads\ReSharper\ReSharper.v6.1.37.86.vs11.0.Vsix

I am logged in as the Domain Administrator when I attempt to install.

Immediately, preceding the attempt to install ReSharper 6.1 into Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview, I had SUCCESSFULLY installed my licensed copy of ReSharper 6.1 into Visual Studio 2010 SP1.
