Uninstalling ReSharper Ultimate tools from Visual Studio

Problem: you would like to remove a new ReSharper or dotTrace from Visual Studio to install e.g. ReSharper 8.x back, but Visual Studio still shows ReSharperPlatform/ReSharperUltimate installed.

 

Solution: To completely remove ReSharper Ultimate tools from Visual Studio, please try the following:

  1. Run ReSharper Ultimate installer once again - do you have any products with status Repair? If so, please select Remove for them and select Skip for others.
  2. If there are no items with Repair action, please remove the following folder manually %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\{Visual Studio version}\Extensions\JetBrains
  3. If Visual Studio still thinks ReSharper is installed, try deleting the following Windows Registry branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\{VS version}_Config

I have no ReSharper and wish to remove it but can not, I have no ReSharper in Control Panenl \ Uninstall and there is ReSharper extension in Visual Studio but uninstall button is grayed out :(

Removing folder from AppData does not give me desired result

If removing Visual Studio extension folder from AppData does not help, please try deleting the following Windows Registry branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0_Config - it will update Visual Studio plugin caches

Did this, ReSharper still shows as an installed program in Apps & features (Windows 10)

There's no such key under my HKEY_CURRENT_USER node. I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise.

 

I had Visual Studio 2017 Team Explorer and removed it later on. In my programs and features it still shows the Resharper instance installed under that version of VS.

Any ideas?

all these solutions doesn't work for me. I can't find these registry-keys. 

I want to completely uninstall resharper (installed it for one user) and want to reinstall it for all users.

After uninstall the installer shows me that there is an installation for a single user and I can't install it for all users...

I have the same problem. I can't find the registry-keys.

I reinstalled VS before I uninstall resharper. And maybe that is the reason when I'm trying to uninstall 2017.2.2 version of resharper it always failed. And there are two versions of resharper in my computer now. It is totally messed up.

Is there anyway to completely uninstall all reshaper?
