I've just installed version 1.0 of the add-in, but the "Extract to Resource" item doesn't appear on the Refactor menu. I haven't used any previous versions on the add-in, and have tried uninstalling and re-installing.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Which version of Visual Studio are you using? Also which type of project/solution you are working on while trying to use Resource Refactoring tool.

I'm using Visual Studio 2005 with a solution that has number of C# projects (windows forms apps and class libraries).

I've also tried it with a solution containing a single class library project.

I have the same problem too.

Can this work alongside Resharper? The thing is Resharper adds a menu group Refactor... Therefore, when I right-click I have two menu Refactor, can this cause the problem that the "Extract to Resource" does not appear anywhere?

I would love to use this tool!

Copy ResourceRefactor.AddIn from C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\MSEnvShared\Addins to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\MSEnvShared\Addins and grant read access for everyone. Now it works fine.

I tried this method with Windows XP and VS 2010 and it does not solve my issue.  Any other ideas?  I am using a C# project.

My solution was to uninstall the addin, clean the registry, restart and then reinstall.  Everything is working as expected now.
