'Another instance of ReSharper with the same License' error message


With the new subscription model started November 2015, you can run multiple personal licensed copies at the same time (like on laptop and desktop for remote debugging client/server apps).

The same is true for the commercial subscriptions, however, there is also an additional requirement: your operating system username (login) must be the same on all the systems where you will run multiple tool copies at the same time.

If a single License Key is used on two machines at the same time and the requirement is not being followed, the following information dialog will appear:



Same problem.  We bought (10 licenses) with the understanding we'd be able to simultaneously debug on any of our machines.  The username restriction makes that impossible.

We've just started using Resharper but will switch to CodeRush if we have to.
