Multiple instances of VS2008 Team System

Hi!

We bought ReSharper 4.5 a couple of days ago and we have a problem with ReSharper. It works fine in the first VS2008 Team System instance. But when I start a second instance ReSharper menues is all greyed out. It only works in the first instance. Really anoying! I have checked with other users and they don't have this problem but they use standard VS2008 on Vista.

We are using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

Hello Sverker
     Do you start the second instance of Visual Studio by shift-clicking the icon on the task bar?

Yes. When I right clicked and choosed VS2008 to start a second instance ReSharper worked in both instances.

Hello Sverker,

Ah, interesting. The problem is that Visual Studio runs in safe mode when
you hold Shift during its startup. And it doesn't load any addins. When you
start application using Shift-Click, that is probably the case of VS not
loading addins. I will pass it to Microsoft, there is nothing JetBrains team
can do about it.

Sincerely,

It seems to be a Windows thing. If I just hold down the shift key during the click it's ok. But a few milliseconds more and ReShaper add-in isn't selected.

Thanks for the feedback!
