License Infromation is not saved after I close and open Visual Studio

If License Information is not saved between the instances of Visual Studio (e.g. ReSharper is asking for a License on every Visual Studio launch), please do the following:

  1. Close all Visual Studio instances.
  2. Uninstall ReSharper via Installer (For R# 8.x: via 'Control Panel | Add/Remove programs').
  3. Remove the following keys:
    • For ReSharper 9.x: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JetBrains\Shared\vAny" and "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-{some guid}\Software\JetBrains\Shared\vAny" 
    • For ReSharper prior 9.x: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JetBrains\ReSharper\<R# version>\<VS version>\LicenseSettings
  4. Install ReSharper back.
  5. Open single Visual Studio instance.
  6. Enter your license information for ReSharper, when prompted. Press 'OK' button.
  7. Gently close Visual Studio.
  8. Open Visual Studio once again and check if the license information was saved.
