Cannot Install Resharper 2.0 on VS 2003

Hello,

I'm trying to install Resharper 2.0 on VS 2003. The install goes well until the last step where it opens a command line window to register the assemblies. After this it returns with the following message:

Error 1721: There is a problem with your installer package. A program required for this install could not be run. Please contact support, etc. At which point it rolls back the install. The trouble is that cmd line window disappears and the log it produces doesn't show any errors.

I ran the msi with a log and noticed these lines:

Action 8:50:52: RunInstallUtilInstallNew.
Action 8:50:52: SetupDevenvInstall.

One of my open source projects uses re-sharper and I really need it installed, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
