VS2010 can't start after install "Image Insertion"

Jun 26, 2009 at 7:47 PM


I just downloaded (via Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 Extensions form) the image insertion plugin, after I installed the plugin I restarted VS2010 Beta 1but it never start. I see in the Task Manager the a devenv.exe*32 instance, but never shows the IDE.

Any idea? I also checked and I don't have the SDK for Beta 1 installed

Hi Bruno,

We haven't seen this before. Can you try deleting the folder where this extension has been installed (look in AppData, Microsoft\VisualStudio\Extensions) and see if VS starts fine without the folder there?

This way we can start ruling out if the extension has anything to do with VS not loading.

Victor thanks for the advise

u're right, it's related to the user profile. I logged in the same machine with another user and VS2010 Beta 1 runs fine.

I deleted [C:\Users\TFSSetup\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions\Microsoft] content and I still have the same problem.

Also tried deleting [C:\Users\TFSSetup\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions] and still doesn't work.

Ok, VS2010 Beta 1 is running again -> devenv /resetsettings

and it started to work.

I'll install SDK and then I'l try again
