Virtual PC disables Resharper

I'm using virtual PC on my PC because I need to develop both in XP and Vista. The problem is that whenever I open VS in the other Virtual PC the Resharper licence check disables the previous instance. Is there any way to prevent this?

The root cause of this problem is that I'm using the same license in two virtual PCs with has their own IP addresses. The licence checker thinks that two developers are using the same licence, which is ofc not true in this case.

Hello Kimmo,

are you logged in to both PCs under the same account / domain? In this case,
the license checker shouldn't complain.

Hi Dimitry,

This workstation in not connected to any domain. However, the workgroup is same in both virtual PCs, as well as the user account name. Still I have this problem.

Same here...host computer and VM are in the same workgroup (no domain), logged in as the same user on both OS's (host and VM), ReSharper complains about that the license is being used on another machine and disables.
