Why does Resharper 2 call InstallUtil during installation ?

Just wondering why Resharper 2 calls InstallUtil during installation. Seems
a strange thing to do.

Hello Joe,

it needs to invoke some custom actions located in Installer classes, so it
calls InstallUtil.exe. Unfortunately,
the built-in 'Installer class' facility of InstallShield didn't work for
us, though may be we simply didn't dedicate
enough effort to get it working.
