Global settings malfunction?

Hey everyone,

First of all, great tool for another great tool. It was one of the biggest things missing in Resharper.

On to my question. I don't know if I am doing something wrong, but I can't seem to select a different folder than the root of my C: drive for the global settings option. Any folder I select gives me an error saying: "Invalid folder selected: the global settings file will be unaccessible by the current solution."

I've seen another post about sharing the settings across multiple solutions by making it a personal setting and default, so I'm using that right now to share it with the other developers.

Thought I'd point it out. Thanks for a great tool.

Hi Blackunknown,

You can only create global settings files at the solution folder, or up the folder hierarchy. I.e. if your solution is located at C:\My Documents\SourceCode\My Project\ you can create a global settings file at:

C:\My Documents\SourceCode\My Project\

C:\My Documents\SourceCode\

C:\My Documents\

and etc.
