I have VS2008 (with SP1) installed on Windows 7 64-bit with ReSharper 4.5.2 installed. Regardless of whether I am actually using VS or not, but with a project loaded, at semi-regular intervals Visual Studio will crash. If I uninstall ReSharper VS does not crash so clearly it is something to do with ReSharper. It be something to do with the following but have not been able to work out what this means or how to fix it.
In the right hand corner of VS, ReSharper adds it's little round icon to indicate the status of the project. This is obviously hopefully green when all is well and red if the applications has issues. The icon for this project is a grey circle with a blue padlock. If I hold my mouse over this icon the tool-tip says "Cannot load solution-wide analysis cache - cannot not write to the cache directory". Yes, you read and I wrote correctly "cannot not write". Whether that is a typo in the error or whether they mean that it can write I do not know.
I feel that this may be the key to the crashing but cannot find any information on this icon or the analysis cache. I have contacted JetBrains support and besides taking a day to return emails they want me to create a new project that causes the error and send it to them. If I can manage the recreate the error then I am probably likely to be able to fix it so this is a pretty useless suggestion.
