ReSharper keeps forgetting license information.

Hi, I am using VS2008, and had been using version 4.5 with my own 4.0 license, I think, then I upgraded to 5.0 so it switched to evaluation mode, which recently run out. The company I work for bought a bunch of 4.5 licenses that should be valid for 5.0, and seem to be as I can enter the information for my new license, and the red error message turns black and says "Expiration date: never". I click ok, and for the rest of the day everything is ok. If I shut down VS2008 and restart it everything is fine, my license information is remembered.

However when I come back to work the next day, the first time I start VS2008 the license expired window appears with my old license info displayed. I have to re-enter the new license information every day.

Is this a known bug? Could it indicate some other problem with the license?

Thanks.

Hello,

From ReSharper license settings point of view, there's no much difference
between closing Visual Studio for a moment, or closing it overnight. There
must be some other difference, in addition to that. Got any auto-restoring
of the Registry happening (eg problems copying roaming profile when logging
on/off)?

You are correct in that ReSharper does this everytime I start VS 2010. But that is the problem, we got our licenses back in April and we have upgraded to ReSharper 5.0. I have been having no problems in VS 2010. However, the other day I had to do some work on a older project that uses VS 2008 and ever since I am getting the trial has expired dialog every time I start VS 2010. The key we have is a never expired key and everything time I entered it and check it ReSharper seems to report the key correctly. When I exit VS 2010 and restart it I get the Trial version has expired dialog. What has happen and what do I have to do to correct it. I have user Windows to reconfigure ReSharper and I have also uninstalled ReSharper and re-installed it and I still get the problem. Any ideas?

I am having the same issue. I have to re-enter the ReSharper license each morning, but then I can close and re-open VisualStudio as many times as I want during the day without having to re-enter it. I also have both VS2008 and VS2010 installed. When I first start either at the beginning of the day ReSharper pops a window saying my license has expired, has the old 4.0 license information filled in, and says that 4.0 license information is invalid.

I found out my problem. It was because I had a trial version of dotCover that had expired. When I looked closely at the dialog I found it was prompting me for the license key for dotCover and not Resharper. Look closely at the dialog to see if it is Resharper. You may find out, as in my case, it is not for Resharper.

Hello Benjamin,

Could you please perform the following experiment:
1. Close all instances of Visual Studio
2. Start a single instance of Visual Studio 2010
3. Open ReSharper | Help | License Information and make sure a valid license
is entered
4. Press Ok, exit Visual Studio 2010 through File | Exit and restart your
computer

Let me know if this helps. Thank you!
