Using Resharper on a virtual PC

I'm using lot's of virtual PCs  (e.g. for maintenance of older versions of projects). When I tried to  install Resharper on a Virtual PC (guest: Windows XP, host: Windows 7), I  get the following error: "The Windows Installer does not permit  installation from a Remote Desktop Connection."

Is this an unsupported  scenario or is there a way to install Resharper on a virtual PC?

Hello,

Are you using just a VirtualPC running locally, or is it really an RDP connection
to some remote virtual machine?

I haven't heard of any RDP problems before. R# install would usually run
normally when on a terminal connection.

Copy the Installer to a local harddrive of you virtual pc, e.g. c:\ and run if from there.
We had similar problems with msi installers and this helped.

Best regards.

Thanks for your answers. Copying the installer to the local disk solved the problem (previously I started it from the host's drived, mapped with the Virtual PC Integration Features).
