Advanced installation options:

  • Visual Studio "Orcas" 9.0 (not needed for 3.0.2 EAP)
    To install ReSharper 3.0 for Visual Studio "Orcas" 9.0, set the VSVERSION installer property to 9.0:
    msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.msi VSVERSION=9.0
    NOTE: The Visual Studio 9.0 integration is provided "as is". We would like to make sure that it works, but we cannot guarantee that we'll fix all the issues by the 3.0 release. Projects targeting .NET Framework 3.5 are not supported.

  • Experimental Visual Studio Hives
    To install ReSharper 3.0 into an experimental Visual Studio hive, set the VSROOTSUFFIX installer property to the root suffix of the hive you're targeting, for example, "Exp" for the "8.0Exp" hive:
    msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.msi VSROOTSUFFIX=Exp
    The VSVERSION and VSROOTSUFFIX properties can be combined together to support experimental hives on Visual Studio 9.0 as well.

  • Side-by-Side ReSharper Installations
    You may want to install more than one R# instance on the same machine, but for different Visual Studio hives. For that, you need to prevent the installer from upgrading (removing) the existing installations. To suppress the upgrades, set the installer property NOUPGRADE to 1:
    msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.msi NOUPGRADE=1

  • Installation Logs
    The installation logs are very useful for diagnosing installation problems. The logs can be collected with an installer command line switch:
    msiexec /i ReSharperSetup.msi /Log Install.log

  • Installation Directory
    If you're installing more than one ReSharper side-by-side, make sure you specify a different installation location for each of the instances. This can be selected in the installation wizard, or specified in the INSTALLDIR installer property.
