Installing ReSharper 4.5 into VS experimental hive

I'm excited to try out the new nightlies of ReSharper 4.5, but I don't want
to disrupt my working install of 4.1. So I'm trying to install 4.5 into a VS
experimental hive rather than the default. Details are provided here:

I copied InstallExperimentalHive.Proj to the install directory (c:\Program
Files (x86)\JetBrains\ReSharper\v4.5\Bin) and ran the following command from
a VS2008 cmd prompt:

msbuild InstallExperimentalHive.Proj /t:Build

The result was "Build succeeded" with 0 warnings or errors. When I try to

devenv /Setup /RootSuffix ReSharper


devenv /RootSuffix ReSharper

I receive the error "Cannot find one or more components. Please reinstall
the application." I'm running Vista x64, though I'm not sure if that should
make any difference. Thoughts on how to run 4.5 EAP from the experimental

BTW - On another Vista x64 machine (my laptop), I tried the same steps, but
received the following error when running the msbuild step.

Project "C:\Program Files
lHive.Proj" on node 0 (Build target(s)).
C:\Program Files
j(18,3): error MSB4062: The
lHive" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Program Files

Where are the nightly builds? The last one dates back to November 12th and
there was an announcement that 4.5 is going to be released mid January.
Seems to be a big gap between a last build and a soon-to-be-released

Probably, you're looking at the 4.1 branch builds list. R# 4.5 Nightly Builds
are posted to the new page on Wiki. See the announcement for more details:
