Blank/transparent ReSharper windows in VS2019

Problem: ReSharper windows (e.g., Unit Test Sessions, Find Results, Build&Run) open, but do not show contents.



Workaround: disable the option Optimize rendering for screens with different pixel densities on the page Tools | Options | Environment | General.



UPD: Fixed in R# 2019.1.3 (

Any estimates for when ReSharper will be fixed for this bug?


@Ewen Wallace, unfortunately, we cannot give a time estimate at the moment, we're working on the problem:

As for the problem with intellisense - please feel free to follow the issue in YouTrack

Sorry for the inconvenience.


Workaround worked, I had to restart VS.



I had bigger issue with enabled setting in the VS2019. When it was enabled VS2019 crashed each time I tried to open solution, if ReSharper was installed.
As soon as I removed ReSharper, everything was ok. I tried to Repair VS and install latest updated, nothing helped.

What helped: I installed 2018 Resharper, which showed me a pop up warning window about potential issues when the setting is on. 
So I disabled it in VS updated ReSharper to the latest version. Right now everything works fine.  


I had the same problem with R# 2021.1.1 in VS 2019 (16.9.3). So i can't confirm it is fixed in latest Version.

Disabling the Option solved it in my Environment for now.


Hello Martin,

If you have some time, please send us a screenshot of the problem via "Submit a request"

Thanks in advance!


the same problem is occurring again now. But only in the File Structure Window. The above workaround does not help either.

The versions are as follows:
JetBrains ReSharper 2022.1.1 Build 221.0.20220428.93142 built on 2022-04-28
dotCover 2022.1.20220428.101210
dotTrace 2022.1.20220428.101234
ReSharper C++ 2022.1.20220428.100917
ReSharper 2022.1.20220428.100255
dotMemory 2022.1.20220428.101234

Visual Studio Professional 2022 (64-bit) 17.1.6 German

But on the same computer with
Visual Studio Professional 2019 16.11.13 German it works with the above workaround.




Hello Frank Schneller64

Please start VS with the following command: ``devenv.exe /ReSharper.LogFile C:\log\resharper_log.txt /ReSharper.LogLevel Verbose``, reproduce the issue and send us resharper_log.txt. Please share it via our "Submit a request" form at the top of the page.

Thank you.


I have sent the requested files via my request #4014317,




Hello, I had the same problem with Visual Studio 17.2.0
It was resolved by installing ReSharper 2022.1.1

But I still wonder why I hadn't the most recent version with
"Automatically check for ReSharper updates" checked
