I uninstalled ReSharper 2.5 before upgrading to VS2005 SP1. When I try to re-install it afterwards, ReSharper complains that VS is missing an essential hotfix. I'm guessing the hotfix is actually part of SP1, but I don't know for sure.

Can someone at JetBrains clarify?

for what its worth, i just installed sp1 on vista without any apparent issues. So it seems resharper will at least keep working if you install sp1 on top of it.

You want to say no, don't install the hotfix. It's included in SP1.

I'm having no problems with Resharper and the SP. I also uninstalled
Resharper, installed the SP, then re-installed. Call me superstitious. :)

Hello Greg,

ReSharper should not have any problems running on VS 2005 SP 1. However,
it will suggest you to install the hotfix because it isn't (at least for
now) able
to detect the presence of SP 1, and the correct choice is to answer 'No'.

I've had it up & running for a day now, problem free.

I had resharper and other add-ins installed & just installed the service pack right over top of everything as is, no uninstalling anything.

The service pack took 30 minutes on my desktop / 3 hours on my laptop. Both machines are p4 2.66 ghz with 1.5 gigs of ram.

FYI, i've been told if you want to speed up the SP install, and you have C++ installed but dont use it, uninstalling it will speed up the SP install since the C++ libraries are so big.
