Failed to create task

Installed ok but when I dropped the pause task on the designer I get the error below.  Running BIDS 2005 on Windows 7. Thanks.

Just trying out a fresh install here on my win7/2005 VM... seemed to install OK, files in \windows\assembly and sql\dts\90\tasks as expected... adding to toolbox... BOOM!

On the job - get back to you ASAP.

I have found the issue and am able to work around it.  I will upload a fixed 2005 installer as soon as I can.

The root issue (for those that care):  I run Win7 with a SQL/VS 2008 environment on my machine.  In order to provide 2005 builds, I've configured a Virtual PC with the SQL/VS 2005 environment to compile in.  Unfortunately, it appears as though something in the guest-to-host communications is NOT functioning well (Win7 is an unsupported host system) and is corrupting the DLL build - without any warnings or errors.

Thanks for the quick resolution.  I am eager to try the new version.
