Uninstall ReSharper 3.0

I tested ReSharper 3.0 (build 402) and like it. Only the licence expired
today.
So I wanted to install 2.5 again. The problem is that I can not uninstall
3.0 (I run onder Vista).
I get the message: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.
A program run as part of the setup dis not finish as expected. Contact your
support personnel or package vendor."

So how do I revert to 2.5. I really miss my productivity today.....

Can someone please give me some feedback.
I just can not upgrade or unistall 3.0. This is a huge problem. I just want
to put 2.5 back and keep on using that without the danger of an expired licence.
I feel totally crippled without resharper and really loose a lot of productivity.
Is there a way to uninstall 3.0 bu hand?

When I check the windows event logs I see this error message:
Product: JetBrains ReSharper 3.0 -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this
Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish
as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action CA.DevenvSetup.Install,
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\, command: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft
Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE
DevEnv.exe" /Setup /RootSuffix ""

I think it should be something like: DevEnv.com /Setup /RootSuffix ""
But that's just a guess.

Hello,

When I check the windows event logs I see this error message:
Product: JetBrains ReSharper 3.0 -- Error 1722. There is a problem
with this
Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not
finish
as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action
CA.DevenvSetup.Install,


This is strange, because the action you've listed should be run as a part
of the installation process, and not the deinstallation in any way. Also,
it's listed as an optional action there, which means that the uninstallation
should succeed despite of the minor failures.

Could you please give us the uninstall log files, “msiexec /x installation-package-name.msi
/log Uninstall.log”?

location: C:\Program Files (x86)\, command: "C:\Program Files
(x86)\Microsoft
Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE
DevEnv.exe" /Setup /RootSuffix ""
I think it should be something like: DevEnv.com /Setup /RootSuffix ""
But that's just a guess.


Well, looks just nice … I so figure you've gotten a 64bit operating system
there? Does the:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE\DevEnv.exe"
/Setup /RootSuffix ""

— command run OK on its own, not as a part of the uninstallation process?

Sorry I allready worked arround it (I used a microsoft tool to uninstall,
listed on your website) and deleted the resharper 3.0 map.
This left me with no resharper functionallity but with the resharper menu
items in VS2005.
I reinstalled 2.5 and it now feels and looks okee again.

yes I run on Vista 64. The command DevEnv.exe /Setup /RootSuffix did do
nothing for me. But DevEnv.com /Setup /RootSuffix did something, allthough
I do not know what.

Thanks for the reply.

For the /Setup switch, running devenv.exe or devenv.com doesn't make much
difference. But note that the /RootSuffix switch takes one argument, which
was empty in your case (""), but still present, so the final double quotation
mark is not optional.

There is no visual feedback expected from the command, it would just merge
the addins and packages data into the Visual Studio (or cleans up after they're
uninstalled).
