Resharper 2.0 crashing randomly

Hi,

I've got Visual Studio 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 installed, and Resharper 2.0 installed for each one.

Both have been working fine until today. Opening any solutions in VS2005 causes it to crash. Uninstalling or disabling Resharper fixes this problem.

Opening any solutions in VS2003 causes the following error to come up when opening the solution, and randomly again whilst using VS2003:

Win32Exception: The parameter is incorrect

Things still appear to work, but the error is annoying, and I'm concerned as to why this is happening. As with VS2005, if I uninstall or disable Resharper, the errors go away.

Tried installing the older version 1.5, which I thought was okay earlier, though it's actually also broken. It goes into an infinite loop of throwing a NullReferenceException, and I need to kill the process using Task Manager.

(Update: version 1.5 works if I uninstall version 2.0 completely, ie. even the VS2005 version)

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Resharper, and uninstalling and reinstalling VS2003, but it hasn't fixed the problems. Resharper 2.0 is still not working with VS2003 or VS2005.

Is anyone else experiencing problems?

I noticed some Windows updates ran overnight, including some security fixes to the .NET framework. Here is a list of the updates which were installed via automatic updates last night:

Office 2003 Security Update for Word 2003 (KB923094)

Is it possible that one of these has caused Resharper to stop working?

Cheers,

Tried doing a complete reformat. Re-installed Windows, Visual Studio, done a windows update, installed Resharper, and this problem is still occuring.

It would appear that something being installed by Windows Update is doing this, though I would imagine if that was the case, then others would also be experiencing the same problem.

Hope someone can shed some light on this.

After some more testing, I think I've worked out the cause of this problem.

It seems to be caused by Actual Window Manager 4.2 and Resharper. Adding a rule to AWM to exclude Microsoft Visual Studio seems to resolve the problems with both VS2003 and 2005.

Cheers,
