Uninstalling new .NET Tools from Visual Studio

Problem: you would like to remove a new ReSharper or dotTrace from Visual Studio to install e.g. ReSharper 8.x back, but Visual Studio still shows ReSharperPlatform installed.

 

Solution: To completely remove new .NET tools from Visual Studio, please try the following:

  1. Run ReSharper Ultimate (new .NET Tools) installer once again - do you have any products with status Repair? If so, please select Remove for them and select Skip for others.
  2. If there are no items with Repair action, please remove the following folder manually C:\Users\{User Name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\{Visual Studio version}\Extensions\JetBrains

    I have no ReSharper and wish to remove it but can not, I have no ReSharper in Control Panenl \ Uninstall and there is ReSharper extension in Visual Studio but uninstall button is grayed out :(

    Removing folder from AppData does not give me desired result

    If removing Visual Studio extension folder from AppData does not help, please try deleting the following Windows Registry branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0_Config - it will update Visual Studio plugin caches
