Cannot install version 71...

I have an older version (67 or 68) and I am just now trying to upgrade to
version 71. When I attempt to install version 71 I get the dialog that says
my license has expired. The liscence file is from version 68 not version 71
at this point. I assume this is because MSI has not actually applied the new
files to the folder yet. So I try entering the old license and of course it
tells me it's expired.

Now I try and uninstall version 68. Liscence expired dialog again. What
gives? Why do I need a liscence key to uninstall something anyway?

So I'm stuck. I can't get 68 off and I can't get 71 onto my machine. Can
someone post version 71 key so I can get on with this?

Kelly,

what happens if you press Cancel in the License dialog?

OK. I worked around it. I used msiexec to install with the administrator
flag to extract the contents of the MSI to a folder. Then I used the key
from that directory and I now have everything installed.

I still think that it's a bit obnoxious to enter a key on uninstall.

There was actually a bug in the installer that causes VS to load ReSharper
(which in its turn attempts to check license) during uninstallation.
This bug was fixed about a week ago, but may be you still have the older
version.

Surely, and current ReSharper builds prevent VS from loading ReSharper
during
uninstallation.
