How to execute an offline activation

  1. Open in a browser;
  2. Log in to it using JB account;
  3. Hit "Download activation code for offline usage" link and then:

    • Open ReSharper | Help | License Information | Manage License Keys dialog | Paste the activation code to "License Key" field | Hit "Add" button.


    • Open ReSharper | Help | License Information | Manage License Keys dialog | Hit "..." button next to "License Key" field | Point the file with activation code | Hit "Open" | Hit "Add" button.



After downlading the Activation Code, I got to the License information dialog box in ReSharper but I could not figure out how to enter the Activate Code.  I Googled

resharper offline activation

This page was the third hit.  I was very helpful.  Now my license seems to be entered for offline use.



Not working for me! I downloaded the offline license, a text file, and opened Visual Studio, added the license...and still says "Invalid License"


@Rylege Please, could you run Visual Studio with the following command line: 'devenv /ReSharper.LogFile C:\log\resharper_log.txt /ReSharper.LogLevel Verbose'. Then open the result file in a notepad and look for "FIPS" text. If you find FIPS related exception, please follow this article to overcome the issue.


I got the Invalid License today following the steps in the Resharper Invitation Email.   Hmm guy you need to "eat your own dog food" and test these thing out more
