Fonts and Colors


Again my RS colors are missing. I've upgraded to VS9 + RS3.1 and all my RS fonts are missing in the Fonts and Color settings. I've tried multiple times to reinstall/repair to no avail. Out of desperation I've uninstalled my VS8, removed old VS registry settings in both LM and CM but still nothing. If there's nothing else to do can someone please export HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\FontAndColors\{A27B4E24-A735-4D1D-B8E7-9716E1E3D8E0} and post it so I can get my settings to work.

Thanks Heaps

Here is my slice of the registry. I'm not sure if it contains everythig you are looking for.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for the replay. That one looks a bit empty, maybe the color settings are now stored somewhere else. I've had a look and both my previous versions of VS had "Resharper XXX" entries in {A27B4E24-A735-4D1D-B8E7-9716E1E3D8E0} key. VS7 & 8's registry key looks more or less like the bit below that's why I assumed VS9 would be similar. Can someone else have a look as well please.

Right, so I got some RS registry settings in the VS9 key mentioned previously. The colors are applied but the RS colors does not show up in VS's Fonts & Colors. What a pain...

Me again...

Just upgraded to ReSharper 4 but still no entries in "Fonts & Colors". I actually uninstalled version v3 before the v4 install to try and give it a clean slate. Anyone else having the same problem?

Yes. Upgrading to R#4 RTM over top of one of the RCs dropped my R# colour settings (which luckily for my team only included setting the mutable local variables to bold.)
