This seems to be an Windows XP issue.

Here are the steps I used to solved the issue.

1. Start a Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt found in the Programs>Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 >Visual Studio Tools

2. Navigate to the folder where the VSIX files is located with dos commands CD (change directory

3. Run the following command vsixinstaller /a CSLAExtension.vsix

Great Richard.

This issue was around for a long time. I could not reproduce it and did not have time to test on other versions of windows.

Thank you.
