Crash on launch with error 80131515

If you are using roaming profiles at your workplace like we do, Visual Studio will put your add-ins in your profile, which resides on a server. .NET does not like to run managed code from a server and will cause a crash in Chirpy with error 80131515. To work around this you need to add a section to the config file for Visual Studio. This page tells you how:

I figured others may run into this problem and want to know how to fix it.

Also, the existing .MSI (as of July 22, 2010) does not run in this environment either, saying a path is invalid (looks like it is adding an extra '/' in the path). This can be worked around by installing the .vsi directly (downloaded or build from source), but does make you unable to use the extension manager built-in to VS2010.
