"Your evaluation license has expired" error message after 1st Rider launch Follow
The error message may appear after 1st Rider startup (just after activating 30-day evaluation) and may look like this:
Rider stores a couple of settings related to evaluation license in its configuration files. If these config files are corrupted for some reason, evaluation check is not passed, resulting in this error.
- On Windows: delete "C:\Users\<USERNAME>\.Rider2017.1" folder from disk.
- On Mac OS: delete "~/Library/Preferences/Rider2017.1" folder from disk.
- On Linux: delete "~/.Rider2017.1" folder from disk.

I'm running OSX Yosemite (10.10.5) & there's no directory `~/Library/Preferences/.Rider2017.1`.
There is however `~/Library/Preferences/Rider2017.1`.
Removing this directory & restarting fixed the problem (though I had to invalidate caches & restart once).
If you have settings you want to keep, like fonts, colours, inspections, etc, you wan to keep. Goto File > Export Settings and save the settings.jar to your desktop. Delete the folder as above. Then once Rider has restarted you can import your settings, File > Import Settings.
Following these instruction on a mac broke my debugging. My F# projects will no longer debug. I confirmed it was due to this by restoring my Library/Preferences/Rider2017.1 folder.
The deletion of ~/Library/Preferences/Rider2017.1/resharper-host/DecompilerCache is what broke the debugger. Restoring that folder fixed it. Please update your documentation or provide a fix that is a sharp tool rather than a blunt object
This doesn't help for long. A little bit after I delete the folder the problem resurfaces and I get the same prompt. It's weird, it took 10 minutes or so for it to happen
It works for me
Had the same issue this morning, removed/uninstalled previous Rider version (2017.1 RC) and then was able to use 30-day evaluation on the latest version (Rider 2017.1).
Still having the problem after deleting the folder, uninstalling / re-installing Rider, I'm supposed to have an evaluation until September 3rd.
On startup I see my expiration date is 21 Nov 2019 but after some time I see this error that my trail is expired
