Package Load Failure


The environment is Windows Server 2008 X64 Edition, Visual Studio 2008 Team Developer Edition SP1. A fresh install, no unnecessary Packages/Software, all Service Packs.
The Installer runs, it also exits without any UI (e.g. no confirmation of success). I don't know if this is intentional.
Launching VS produces no problem, however, upon loading a pre-existing C# project I get a VSPackage Load Failure dialog, and I've opted to skip this package during load.
Is this a known issue?

This would be amazing if I could get it to work. I get the same error as discussed here and in the forums. I tried to download and run the source, but there are a whole bunch of dependencies that are not listed anywhere. Can you please list what you have installed in your dev environment so we can run/debug your code, and, perhaps, point you in the right direction of the error?

@the skipster,

Well obviously, one dependency is to have the PowerShell runtime installed:

The solution also needs Visual Studio 2008 SDK, because it's actually a plug'in to Visual Studio:

And finally, the solution uses WIX as its setup and deployment project.

With all this, you should be able to make it work.
I'm trying to, as I write this comment, because I have the same problem.
