You can also get a free license if you are a student or teacher, an open source contributor or project owner, or a Microsoft MVP or ASP.NET Insider.

If you want to continue using Resharper after the evaluation period, you need to buy a license and activate it. However, what if you need more time to evaluate Resharper? Is there a way to reset the evaluation period and extend your trial?


There are some methods that can help you reset Resharper evaluation period, but they are not officially supported or recommended by JetBrains. They may also violate the terms of use of Resharper, so use them at your own risk. We will show you these methods in the next section.


How to reset Resharper evaluation period using different methods




In this section, we will show you how to reset Resharper evaluation period using different methods. These methods are based on various sources and user feedback, but we cannot guarantee that they will work for you or that they will not cause any problems. Please use them with caution and backup your data before trying them.


Method 1: Use JetBrains Account




One of the easiest ways to reset Resharper evaluation period is to use a JetBrains Account. A JetBrains Account is a single sign-on account that allows you to access JetBrains products and services, such as Resharper, Rider, dotTrace, dotMemory, etc. You can create a JetBrains Account for free at [JetBrains website].


To use this method, follow these steps:


  • Open Visual Studio and go to Extensions > ReSharper > Help > License Information.



  • Click on the "Use JetBrains Account" button and enter your email and password.



  • If you don't have a JetBrains Account yet, click on the "Create account" link and follow the instructions.



  • Once you are logged in, you should see a message saying that you have successfully activated your license.



  • Restart Visual Studio and enjoy Resharper for another 30 days.



Note that this method may not work if you have already used a JetBrains Account before or if JetBrains detects multiple activations from the same account. In that case, you may need to create a new JetBrains Account with a different email address and repeat the steps above.


Method 2: Use License Key




Another way to reset Resharper evaluation period is to use a license key. A license key is a code that activates your license for Resharper or other JetBrains products. You can get a license key by buying a license or by getting a free license for certain cases (see above).


To use this method, follow these steps:


  • Open Visual Studio and go to Extensions > ReSharper > Help > License Information.



  • Click on the "Enter License Key" button and enter your license key.



  • If you don't have a license key yet, you can buy one at [JetBrains website] or get a free one if you qualify (see above).



  • Once you enter the license key, you should see a message saying that you have successfully activated your license.



  • Restart Visual Studio and enjoy Resharper for as long as your license is valid.



Note that this method may not work if you have already used the same license key before or if JetBrains detects multiple activations from the same license key. In that case, you may need to get a new license key or contact JetBrains support for assistance.


Method 3: Use License Server




A third way to reset Resharper evaluation period is to use a license server. A license server is a server that provides licenses for Resharper or other JetBrains products over the network. You can set up your own license server or use an existing one (if you have access to it).


To use this method, follow these steps:


  • Open Visual Studio and go to Extensions > ReSharper > Help > License Information.



  • Click on the "Use License Server" button and enter the URL of the license server.



  • If you don't have access to a license server yet, you can set up your own using [this guide] or find one online (use Google or other search engines).



  • Once you enter the URL of the license server, you should see a message saying that you have successfully activated your license.



  • Restart Visual Studio and enjoy Resharper for as long as the license server is available.



Note that this method may not work if the license server is down or unreachable, or if JetBrains detects multiple activations from the same license server. In that case, you may need to find another license server or contact the administrator of the license server for assistance.


Method 4: Delete User Settings and Solution Files Delete User Settings and Solution Files




A fourth way to reset Resharper evaluation period is to delete the user settings and solution files that Resharper creates. These files store information about your license and evaluation status, as well as your preferences and customizations for Resharper. By deleting them, you can trick Resharper into thinking that you are a new user and start a new evaluation period.


To use this method, follow these steps:


  • Close Visual Studio and make sure that no instance of it is running.



  • Go to the folder where Resharper stores its user settings. The default location is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\JetBrains\ReSharper\vAny.



  • Delete the folder that corresponds to the version of Resharper that you are using. For example, if you are using Resharper 2021.2, delete the folder named 2021.2.



  • Go to the folder where Resharper stores its solution files. The default location is C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\JetBrains\Transient\ReSharperPlatformVsversion.



  • Delete the folder that corresponds to the version of Visual Studio that you are using. For example, if you are using Visual Studio 2019, delete the folder named v16.



  • Restart Visual Studio and enjoy Resharper for another 30 days.



Note that this method may not work if JetBrains has changed the location or format of the user settings and solution files, or if Resharper detects that you have deleted them. In that case, you may need to find the new location or format of the files or contact JetBrains support for assistance.


Method 5: Use a Reset Tool




A fifth way to reset Resharper evaluation period is to use a reset tool. A reset tool is a third-party program that can modify or delete the registry entries and files that Resharper uses to store its license and evaluation information. By using a reset tool, you can bypass the license check and reset the evaluation period.


To use this method, follow these steps:


  • Download a reset tool from [this link] or [this link]. These are two examples of reset tools that claim to work for Resharper, but there may be others available online. Use them at your own risk.



  • Close Visual Studio and make sure that no instance of it is running.



  • Run the reset tool as administrator and follow the instructions on the screen.



  • Restart Visual Studio and enjoy Resharper for another 30 days.



Note that this method may not work if the reset tool is outdated or incompatible with your version of Resharper or Visual Studio, or if JetBrains has implemented anti-reset measures. In that case, you may need to find an updated or compatible reset tool or contact JetBrains support for assistance.


Pros and cons of resetting Resharper evaluation period




Now that we have shown you how to reset Resharper evaluation period using different methods, let's discuss the pros and cons of doing so. Resetting Resharper evaluation period may seem like a good idea if you want to save money or extend your trial, but it also comes with some drawbacks and risks.


Pros of resetting Resharper evaluation period




The main advantage of resetting Resharper evaluation period is that you can use Resharper for free for longer than 30 days. This can be useful if you need more time to evaluate Resharper features and benefits, or if you cannot afford to buy a license at the moment. You can also try different versions of Resharper without paying for each one.


Cons of resetting Resharper evaluation period




The main disadvantage of resetting Resharper evaluation period is that it is unethical and illegal. By resetting Resharper evaluation period, you are violating the terms of use of Resharper and JetBrains, which state that you can only use Resharper for free for 30 days for evaluation purposes only.

By resetting Resharper evaluation period, you are tampering with the registry entries and files that Resharper uses to store its license and evaluation information. This can cause errors, crashes, data loss, or security issues on your computer. You may also lose your preferences and customizations for Resharper every time you reset it. Moreover, JetBrains may detect your attempts to reset Resharper evaluation period and block your access to their products or services. dcd2dc6462
