ReSharper does not work when FIPS enabled

This is a known issue here:

Suggested workaround:

  • update <program>.exe.config with: 
<enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>

As we are talking about Visual Studio executable file, so you may find a related config file next to devenv.exe here "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio {VS version}\Common7\IDE\" directory


For Visual Studio 2017 the path is

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe.config

You may need to return and update this file with the setting mentioned above after each Visual Studio Update (I had to each time when going from 15.4.2 -> 15.4.3 -> 15.4.4)
