Visual Studio 2005 integration installation fails (workaround)

description

MSI fails to install visual studio 2005 integration.
This seems to be a problem in the installer because the product can be installed manually.
 
Workaround:
Install without VS integration, use orca to extract registration information and register manually.
 
Below the reconstructed registry entries
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
