Installation issue

I just tried 211 (and 210 before that).
With both my projects silently disappear (no exceptions etc).
VS shows the project files greyed out and empty; i.e.:
ProjectXXX (unavailable)
- The project file cannot be loaded.

Any ideas?

Hello James,

please try to create a simple C# project. Does it work for you? Does the
problem
you described happen with all projects?

I get this with all existing projects.
Curiously something seems to be messing with file attributes.
Creating a new project gives me a strange file access related error message (as does closing a project or a file). The error on project creation is attached.
All addins are disabled apart from resharper (curiously there are two resharpers listed one is v2 but only one is active; I did de-install 1.5).
Disabling resharper resolves the issues.

Okay,
I think I've got to the bottom of this.
This issue is related to SCC and is described here:

I don't know if resharper does anything with this but while I have clearcase installed on my machine I haven't been using the VS integration.
Something in the install / uninstall seems to have tripped it (it even started giving similar errors with 1.5.1).
Blanking out the registry key outlined in the article seems to have resolved it.

Now both 1.5.1 and 211 are behaving; any ideas what caused it?
