Uninstall from Experimental Hive

Is there a simple way to uninstall Resharper (4.0 Full) from the VS 2008 (or 2005) experimental hive? I do lots of development on a Visual Studio package, and I frequently want to take Resharper out of the equation in my experimental/debug version of Visual Studio.

Resetting the experimental hive via "VSRegEx GetOrig 9.0 Exp" obviously doesn't work, as it's bringing things over from the normal hive. In fact that's how Resharper showed up in my experimental hive in the first place. I never deliberately put it there.

The only way I've been able to remove Resharper from the experimental hive is to:

1) Uninstall Resharper completely
2) Reset experimental hive as described above
3) Reinstall Resharper

This is pretty time consuming, but easier than manually combing through the registry. I'm hoping somebody can point out an easier way.

Thanks!
Ian

Hello Ian,

Removing ReSharper value from "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0Exp\AutomationOptions\LookInFolders"
should be sufficient.

Hello,

The procedure is briefly described at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/ReSharper/InstallationNotesfor+ReSharper

Hello,

Ilya's suggestion worked nicely, thanks.


Note that it does not remove R# integration or prevent it from being loaded.
It just enforces “sleep mode” on R#.
