Installer resets all VS settings


First I gotta say I love this project and I hope it's still alive.
The problem I'm experiencing is that after installation VS settings are lost ... not just toolbox, all settings (shortcuts, theme - editor colors) just revert to some defaults.
For instance I have imported settings for C# developer, and I have to it all again every time I reinstall the package.
The installer is called from a VS Package setup, as a custom action, using :
/vs2008 /installdesktop "[TARGETDIR]\DotExe.BusinessSystem.UiGenerator.ToolboxControls.dll" "Dxf forms"
And as much as I love the project, this issue is making me leave it out of the setup and let customers manually create toolbox tab and add dll.
I don't have any idea where to start looking for this one, so any help would be appreciated.

I have had the same problems with this software for years. I made this issue thread a while back:

My main problem is that I can't recreate it locally. My users consistently have the problem, but I don't. It's pretty frustrating.

Also, I don't know that this project is being maintained.
