"Color Identifiers" won't stay checked - R# 4.5 on VS2005, Win7

Just updgraded my machine from win xp to win 7 and now, everytimeI open VS I have to go to Resharper > Options and turn this on.

Why won't it stay on by default?

Where does it save this setting?

Hello Eric,

What's the exact version of ReSharper you have currently installed? Could
you please perform an experiment:
1. Close all instances of Visual Studio
2. Start a single instance
3. Open ReSharper | Options | Code Inspection | Settings and make sure 'Color
identifiers' option is turned on
4. Press Ok and exit Visual Studio through File | Exit
5. Restart Visual studio and check if this option is still turned on

Let me know if this helps. Thank you!

I performed this exact experiment, and still the setting opens up disabled.

All VSes closed, tried setting it a restarting VS several times, still not sticking.

I've confirmed that it does save the setting to the file correctly:
C:\Users\eweinschenk\AppData\Roaming\JetBrains\ReSharper\v4.5\vs8.0\UserSettings.xml
Has the following:
  <HighlightingSettings>
    <IdentifierHighlightingEnabled>True</IdentifierHighlightingEnabled>
    <SeverityTable />
  </HighlightingSettings>


I had a hunch this is related to my switching the setting on Code Style Sharing to "Shared across the team, per solution".
But nope: after setting CodeStyle sharing back to false, Color Identified still didn't stick....

I'm still lost on this.


I'll be offline from Dec 23-28 so if you can't get back to me today, please have a happy holiday and we'll continue this later.

Thanks!

NEVERMIND -

I'm using a plug in called Resharper Settings Manager and it was loading from it's own file.

SORRY!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
