Action lists disapearing

I've been using R# for over a year on this machine and it has always ran well untill recently.

Now, when I go to an issue and click the lightblub icon, or hit Alt + Enter, the action list pops open for a split second and then closes.  My symptoms match what this guy had: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/549728/weird-resharper-issue-with-action-lists-that-dont-work

I'm also seeing this issue when I go to the Resharper menu and hit "About Resharper"

I've done a repair on VS, and reinstalled R#, even D/Ling the most recent build.  No help.

Is there a fix for this?

In the meantime, is there any way to access the refactorings in this list (remember, Alt + Enter is doing the same thing) besides through the Action Lists?  I really need access to the Change Namespace to match file location functionality due to some refactoring I'm doing right now.

FWIW, C#, VS2008, XP, latest build of R# 4.5

Have you tried accessing the available refactorings with <Ctrl><Shift><R>?

Hello,

Have you installed any software, not necessarily VS-related, around the time
this started happening?

Hello Greg
     Could you please post the list of installed products from Help > About Visual Studio? Could you please also check if closing all tool windows fixes the issue? Thank you!

Ctrl+Shift+R produces similar behavior as alt+enter or clicking the arrow.  It flashes a popup, which instantly closes.

Here is the list of installed items from Help --> About.  (Note:  It does contain Database Edition stuff that the other guy mentioned in his thread, but that has been there the entire time and has worked for months.)

Restarted VS (for good measure)

No-change.

Help me, I'm dying here without my R#!

yes, I do.  Both SSMS 2005 and SSMS 2008.  Do you think they are related to the issue?  (FWIW, they've both been there for quite a while before the problem started happening.)

Got the problem, installed Visual Studio 2008 Database Edition on Friday 19.11.2009, today 23.11.2009 couldn't open go to member, go to type when I had a source file open. Uninstalling Visual Studio 2008 Database Edition solved the issue, though I have to use it, will or is there any fix for this? Thanks

Woot!  Finally some progress.  I did a full uninstall of VS, and the re-installed without the DB edition, and R# is working again.  (Sadly VS SP1 breaks the ability to add/remove components, so I had to uninstall the whole thing, and then reinstall.  MS's problem, not R# problem)

I'm not sure why this worked, since I've been working successfully with them both installed for nearly a year.

What is the status of getting these two products working together?  I use the DB edition features as part of my job function, and don't want to be without it.  (I'd rather have R# than it, though)

This problem had been driving me nuts for about 2-3 weeks.  Every few days I'd spend around an hour trying to get ReSharper to work again.  The problem actually seemed to be getting worst.  First the action list disappeared and then the rename functionality quit working.  I'm sure these issues all started at the same time but the action list issue was the most obvious.

Anyway, uninstalling Visual Studio DB edition seems to have fixed the Resharper issues.

Thanks for the help.
