Fatal Execution Engine Error when installing SQL Bundle 5

I get this error towards the end of the install. Click OK, get the error a few times, keep clicking OK. Event log says install successful. SQL Compare appears in list of Programs from start menu. Try to run it, and I get the exact same error.

I've googled the hell out of this and apparently this is a catch all error for an unhandled exception of type System.ExecutionEngineException

has anyone else seen this? I'm installing on Win 2003 Server SP2. Others where I work can install successfully ...

    Any Engine Execution Exception usually indicates a problem in the .NET Framework. You may have corrupt native images that need to be ironed out, you can do that by running ngen from a command prompt:
    %systemroot%\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\ngen /update
    Otherwise I'd assume that the .NET Framework is somehow damaged and needs to be reinstalled on that computer.
