Installation error

Hi,

I just installed ReSharper 4.1 on my office laptop (running win2k and Visual Studio 2005 + sp1) this is the same setup as on my desktop but on the laptop i get this error everytime I try to start Visual Studio (in a dialog box):
-----
JetBrains ReSharper 4.1 add-in has failed to start.
Configuration system failed to initialize.
----
After I click on "OK" Visual Studio continues to work but without ReSharper.
Does anyone know what this error is caused by or how I can fix it? Btw reinstalling Visual Studio/ReSharper/Windows in any order does not help.

Hello,


Configuration system failed to initialize.



Does anyone know what this error is caused by or how I can fix it? Btw

reinstalling Visual Studio/ReSharper/Windows in any order does not help.

This could indicate a problem in one of the .config files in the .NET Framework.
As the first approach I'd recommend looking up the devenv.exe.config file
in the Visual Studio binaries folder and checking if it's got corrupted.
R# modifies this file during installation, and places a backup nearby with
a random file name (contains a GUID). Restoring the backup file in place
of the modified one could possibly fix the problem. Plugins to ReSharper
will not work without the modified file, but the other features should not
be affected. If this happens to be the case, please send us the R#-modified
devenv.exe.config file that caused the product to fail.

PS by reinstalling Windows, do you mean formatting the drive (ie cleaning
up per-user data also)?
