I'm getting error below when trying to install on Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.  Is it supported in VS2010Ultimate?

Yes it is supported. It is a Guidance Automation Extension, therefore, you need to install GAX 2010 first. :)

After GAX 2010 installation, if you encounter the above issue again.

Please make sure you have the required service pack(s), before you start the GAT installation
