Visual Studio 2005’s VSI failed to installed after setup Visual Studio 2008 (Actually it’s changing My Documents location)

I try to install the Time Tracker VSI (downloadable from ) after both VS2005 and VS2008 are installed. But I got the follow message instead. No error for installation of VSI meant for VS2008.


At first I thought is VS2008 screwed up my installation, but after some research online, I realize its not. Before installing VS2008, I actually moved my user’s profile from C Drive to E Drive. So to solve this problem, I simply launch VS2005 and go into Tools –> Options menu, on the left pane, click on Projects and Solutions, change the location of both Project templates and also Item templates. Then now it should have solved the problem.
