Hello,

Resharper | Help throws an exception. I am on Orcas. Does it work for
anyone else?


What is the exception message?

We haven't checked the Help on Visual Studio 9, but it definitely works in
2005. Probably, it shouldn't work in 9 as all of the collection namespaces
we're mounting into are of the 8 version.

Please check the Contents and Help Filters, if there's a working entry for
ReSharper, then everything is OK, otherwise, there will be no integrated
help ;) The standalone help should be available with “dexplore.exe /helpcol
ms-help://JetBrains.ReSharper.1033”.

What is dexplore.exe? Isn't on my system.
Here is the trap. BTW, I installed R# into Orcas with the VSVERSION=9.0 switch.

Hello,

What is dexplore.exe? Isn't on my system.


Dexplore.exe is “Microsoft Document Explorer”. Its absence indicates that
you don't have the MS-Help II installed on your machine, and, conscequently,
no MSDN either. As R# help utilizes the MS-Help II format, it is not possible
to view the R# help on such a machine.

BTW, I installed R# into Orcas with the
VSVERSION=9.0 switch.


Right, for the current R# version, this is the only way of installing R#
under Orcas.

JetBrains.Util.InternalErrorException: Could not find the ReSharper
help collection under Visual Studio version 9.0.0.0.


Uh, well. As far as I can see, there is no special branch of code to open
the help under the 9.0 Visual Studio, mainly because we do not integrate
into the MSDN collection yet, so there's no URI to open. It turns out that
the command line I've given you is the only way for viewing the help under
VS 9. And it actually works on the Orcas Beta 1 virtual machine distributed
by Microsoft.

OK, I found dexplore.exe. But the command line you specified does not work. I tried adding "/LaunchNamedUrlTopic DefaultPage" but that just gives an intro page that does
not actually link to any content besides a list of new features. What is the real top-level page of the help collection? Thanks
