ReSharper Web Help

ReSharper is a commercial software, copyright protected under international law. Each copy of the product requires a license.

For new users, ReSharper offers a 30-day free evaluation period. During this period, you can enjoy full functionality of the product and decide whether it suits your needs. To use this option, click Free evaluation in the License Information dialog box and click OK. Free evaluation period will start from this moment and you can see how many days are left next to this option.

Before the the free evaluation period is over, you need to specify product license information in one of the following ways:

  • If you are an individual developer, you can purchase the product license on the ReSharper Web site and specify license information.
  • For corporate clients, ReSharper allows storing and distributing license tickets through JetBrains License Server. The server allows enterprises to establish limited or unlimited number of product licenses and distribute them within the corporate network. The benefit of this approach is that as soon as the user closes the application, his or her license ticket returns automatically to the server and becomes available for other users. To use this type of licensing, you need to set up obtaining license tickets from the License Server.
  • If the licenses are distributed through the License Server and you are planning to work without access to the corporate network, you can obtain a permanent license ticket from the License Server and then return it when necessary.

Tip

You can check the status of your license in the License Information dialog box or in the About dialog box.
