How to Link Framework Source

I have downloaded the framework source from MSDN's reference source page.  

Instead of

PdbNavigator: Downloader: http://referencesource.microsoft.com/source/.NET/4/DEVDIV_TFS//Dev10/Releases/RTMRel/ndp/clr/src/BCL/System/Threading/Tasks/Task.cs/1305376/Task.cs -> asked for EULA confirmation
PdbNavigator: Downloader: http://referencesource.microsoft.com/source/.NET/4/DEVDIV_TFS//Dev10/Releases/RTMRel/ndp/clr/src/BCL/System/Threading/Tasks/Task.cs/1305376/Task.cs?Accept=60cfd95167f54e5dbe291f30af235b39 -> The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.


R# can find the source in

<LocalDir>/Dev10/Releases/RTMRel/ndp/clr/src/BCL/System/Threading/Tasks/Task.cs/1305376/Task.cs

How do I specify this path?

Hi Candy,

You may add custom path for external sources. I added a screenshot for a reference.

Thanks!

Hi, Alex,

I tried this approach before I came to the forum.

It works for a regular project, but didn't work for the .NET framework source.  Do you know which path I should type?  Does R# scan through the entire directory structure to look for a source file?

Thanks,
Candy

Hi Candy,

Could you please describe, why do you need to include .net framework sources in there? If you select "Navigation to sources" in Resharper | Options | Tools | External Sources, ReSharper's Navigation mechanism will automatically use .net framework sources, and, if enabled, even download them directly from the MS servers.

Thanks.

Yes, that's what I did.  For some reason, R# is only able to download the symbol, but not the source code.  And since I have downloaded them all, I figure it is easier to point R# to the directory instead of it hitting the server every time.  I also want to avoid running the decompiler.  

Thanks for your help.
