If ReSharper C++ considerably hinders performance of Visual Studio, please provide a performance snapshot (following the instructions under step 7) to the development team to investigate.

For a better experience with ReSharper C++ we recommend disabling Visual Studio native C++ support. In order to do this please go to Tools | Options | Text Editor | C/C++ | Advanced | Browsing/Navigation and set Disable Database to True. Please note, that in this case Visual Studio Class Wizard won't be available.

Definitely looking forward to some of these issues getting resolved


Resharper is so slow it is useless. Plus, the only feature I really care about does not work (find usages of a function).

I have been a very happy Resharper++ user for about 3+ years now. Initially there were serious performance issues, but after some effort they were nicely resolved.

Unfortunately, this release completely kills VS a few times a day, again. Just right now I right-clicked on a method in a virtual, abstract, interface, and VS comes to full deadstop, complaining that an 'internal operation' is going on. A similar thing happens when using the 'refactor-rename' function, and when using the contextual search function. How do I downgrade?
