1. Create a new VS root suffix by running

ReSharper | Options | Tools/Unit Testing | Enable Debug (Internal)

Visual Studio will choose the debugger based on the framework version the plugin is compiled against. This why we need
a debugger project for each version of Visual Studio ReSharper supports. To debug the plugin for
- ReSharper on VS 2010, use Machine.Specifications.ReSharperRunner.Debug.VS2010
- ReSharper on VS 2008, *transiently* switch the Machine.Specifications.ReSharperRunner.Debug.VS2010 to be compiled
against .NET 3.5 (or create a new debugger project for .NET Framework 3.5).
