All menu's grayed out. Not in addins

Hi, I'm trying to install in VS2005 in a classroom of computers. They all don't seem to work. The menu's are grayed (see pic) and the addins doesn't list it. I've reinstalled SP1 and reinstalled ReSharper.
It works fine on my home computer with 2008.
Note the 'ReSharper [unloaded]' bit in the VS about box text
I've tried the "regsvr32 msxml6.dll" thing and it's fails.

Hello,

I've tried the "regsvr32 msxml6.dll" thing and it's fails.


Is it that regsvr32 reports a failure code, or does it succeed without any
help regarding the issue?

Possilbly downloading an MSXML6 installation from the Microsoft Downloads
website could help.

Yeah the registration returns a fail code. I'll try MSXML next time I'm in the classroom.
The computers arern't locked down or anything. They should have full admin access.
Thanks.

ps, your forums are really confusing to find

hmm, MSXML6 won't install because it says there's a higher version installed. (it's not letting me uninstall it either)
