Specify where ReSharper settings are saved

In IDEA I can specify where the settings are loaded from. Can I do the same for ReSharper?

I don't want to use "Documents and Settings\user\....".

thanks,

John

We use "roaming profiles" and sometimes I'm logged into two different machines; laptop & workstation. When I take the laptop home it can't find the settings when I'm not on our network.

Our profiles are stored on a file server.

Maybe you should use SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData, (normally
expands to C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data) since the settings may be valid only for the current machine. Regards, Thomas Valentin Kipiatkov (JetBrains) wrote: >>]]> I don't want to use "Documents and Settings\user\....".

Dumb question, where is the "SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData" value located?

thanks,

With the introduction of Windows Vista there will be a new security feature
called UAC (User Account Control). One of the guidelines is that user specific
data should be stored in %appdata% folder.

As much as I like to have complete control over my system I still believe
that some stuff should be isolated from the user. In my opinion it is a good
thing that you know where ReSharper stores the settings but if it was up
to me I wouldn't even give the user to opportunity to change this location.

Again sorry for the newbie questions... New to .NET

So is there a file or something in the Resharper folder where I change/set this value?

thanks again,

John

Well, how would you like this to be controlled? Environment variable? Registry?

Hello Valentin,

I guess that what is meant is an UI option telling where to store settings.
Another question is
where to store this very option...

I wasn't so much asking for a feature, but if this feature existed. It's ok if it doesn't, I just was curious since IDEA has this ability.

As for where, I hadn't given it much thought. A config file would be simple. Again, I wasn't "demanding"/"suggesting" this feature, just inquiring if it existed.

thanks,

John

You won't understand recursion until you understand recursion ;)
