"The CrossAppDomainPointer is NULL" or "Error stuffing with an RT_GROUP_ICON resource named #101. Access is denied" error

Possible solutions: 

  1. Check access rights for "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys" directory and all files and sub-folders inside it. Your Windows account (and sometimes "Users" account if exists) should have Full access to them;
  2. Try running the installer as administrator;
  3. Disable any antivirus/firewall software which may lock any files ReSharper creates during installation process.
  4. If you use web installer, download a full one.

    I ran into this issue and was able to solve it by running the installer in Administrator Mode with Visual Studio shut down.

    I ran into this on Windows 10, but not Windows 8.1. It installed fine on 8.1, but I did have to change the permissions for 10. (I should have read Chris' comment first)

    Is there another way to fix this? I work at a Fortune 100 company who has put group policies to not allow to change the permissions on this folder. The installer for v8.2 never gave me a problem. If this can't be fixed, I won't be able to install the latest version.

    I had the same problem in Windows 10. However, once I run the installation in the context of administrator I was able to complete successfully. right click on the exe for the install and click on run as administrator

    I've got the same problem with the "Error stuffing..." and I've changed security settings on the folder indicated above and Run as Administrator. I've also uninstalled and reinstalled with no success. Is there some other way to get this install to work? What part of the program fails with this installer issue?

    On Win 10, after changing some Resharper settings, and restarting VS 2015, Resharper disappeared from Visual Studio!!!! After checking VS extensions, Resharper was not installed! Tried to reinstall and got the CrossAppDomainPointer is null error. Tried setting permissions on crypto\RSA\MachineKeys to full access and did web installer as administrator. Nothing works. PLEASE FIX ASAP.

    Using the full installer (not the web installer) successfully reinstalled Resharper.

    I am attempting to install ReSharper Ultimate in Windows 10 and am getting the CrossAppDomainPointer is NULL error message. I have checked the access rights to the above location, have run the installer as administrator and have also attempted both the web and full installers but continue to get the same error message. Any advice?

    Nevermind, problem fixed. My antivirus (Panda) seems to have been blocking the install. Once I disabled it, the CrossAppDomainPointer is NULL message disappeared. Since install I have major problems with Visual Studios 2015 crashing before fully starting up (including after a complete reinstall) but I can't say for sure whether or not the issues are linked at all.

    Same problem as others, can not install dotMemory on Windows 7 ultimate due to CrossAppDomainPointer is NULL error message. Running installer as admin, antivirus turned off, firewall turned off, permissions to MachineKeys applied, using the full installer.

    Very frustrating, I'd really like to try this tool but if I can't even install it there is no way I'll be able to do so.

    Running the installer in administrator role did the trick.
