How to collect ReSharper log file

You need to launch Visual Studio with the following parameters:


/ReSharper.LogFile C:\log\resharper_log.txt /ReSharper.LogLevel {Level}


There are a couple of "LogLevel" levels available:

- Verbose

- Trace 

In most of the cases "Verbose" level is enough, so please use it as a default level besides cases when one explicitly asked you to collect logs with the "Trace" level. 

Also the following article can be useful: How to collect ReSharper log file with a specific trace scenario?

All methods of collecting log files are described here: How to collect ReSharper log file?

Would you mind updating the example for a more recent version of VS, to save having to work it out each time?


What if I forget to run Visual Studio with such command line arguments?  Are there still logs I can collect that are written out by default?


Bchart they can be found in %Temp%\JetLogs in this case.
