Licence expires shortly

I know it's an EAP tradition to let the EAP licence expire in at least some timezones before putting up a new one.  But I'm intending to spoil it this time by pointing out that the current one will run out on Sunday/Monday this weekend.   :-)

Hello Will,

Thank you for pointing that out! I was also going to spoil this tradition,
so we'll either publish a new build with new eval period built-in or we will
publish a new eval license :)

Actually Will was right

I am in Australia (GMT+10) and my working day has already started and ReSharper EAP license already expired.
I think you should prepare new EAP license in advance a bit :)

Thanks

Hello Michael,

The updated evaluation license is already published on the nightly builds
page. Also, you should be able to use the 'Free evaluation' option in ReSharper's
License Information dialog. Thank you!

Andrey is there any way we can use that license key for existing EAP installations? I'm currently using 2050 that is about to expire and from the comments on this group it doesn't really look like I want to use any of last builds of May

This thread shows a giant failure of the R# 6 EAP. To make my R#5 license not activate, and to put such short term licenses on the EAP builds.

I'm now forced to uninstall R#6 to reinstall 5. The last series of builds are just very low quality from the ratings and responses on the forums. And honestly this experience being so poor right now has irritated me enough that maybe I'll evaluate Telerik JustCode for myself and my entire shop. I hope you take these remarks seriously because prior to now I had unwavering support with R# and had zero intention of even expending effort to compare products, whereas now maybe I need to.

I'm not sure you get the point of an EAP?

I understand being annoyed that it doesn't all work as the features are really useful and it would be great if it all worked flawlessly.  

But to get to that point, it requires a bunch of users to use the product and *suffer* the pain of bugs / slowness / etc so that when it gets actually realeased its a quality product!

Perhaps, for you, its better to stick with 5 till its released?

Hello Chris,

We're really sorry for the inconveniences, but at the moment this is how
our Early Access Program works. Old builds get expired, so that users upgrade
to newer builds and test the changes we've made, otherwise there's not much
point in using a EAP build. Have you tried the latest build which came out
today? We've put a lot of fixes in there, so it might be stable enough for
you to try. By the way, could you please clarify which build have you used
and what message did you see when it expired?

2050. And it just said license expired. Which at that point left me with enter info or cancel dialog to disable resharper which at that point I uninstalled.

No where did specifically cite technical problems, my problems were with the licensing scheme. It doesn't make sense when there are giant gaps in nightly builds to have the license window be so small. Honestly it doesn't make sense to have the license not accept my 5.0 key for EAP builds permanetly (or for a year etc some other arbitarily long period).

I have used the EAP builds (and have prior to each new R#) since 4 was in EAP, i use them to have access to the newest features as early as possible. To have to regress back and lose significant amounts of features is probably the most jarring user experience you can ever force upon a user. And forced is a fair word, in the end R# is al about me producing code faster than humanly possibly without it. If I have to sit there and wait every 5 key strokes, then it actually hurts my productivity. So certainly not all builds are usable, and then there was no builds, and then expiration.

Hello Chris,

Have you tried using the extended license that is published on the nightly
builds page? Thank you!

Hello Chris,

Also, could you please confirm that you're using build 2050 and not build
2150, since build #2050 is a really old one and was released last year. Thank
you!

Hello Will,

I'm sorry for the inconvenience! First of all, you can always switch to 'Free
evaluation' option on the License Information dialog. Secondly, there's no
use in updating the EAP license since ReSharper 6 has gone RTM today. Thank
you!
