LKBEN10579: MS Visual Studio: Problems resulting through defective Profile


Errors in Visual Studio Behaviour, that can hardly be explained


Misconfiguration of local Visual Studio configuration through roaming profiles or one-time events


At first-time start of Microsoft Visual Studio ist starts it's own configuration of the user in the corresponding local userprofile under %appdata%MicrosoftVisual Studio<version> and the Current User Settings in the registry.

If this configuration seems to be corrupt (f. ex. through a configuration mix by using different Visual Studio machines and active roaming profiles), it can simply be corrected by a new config process through

"Devenv.exe /resetuserdata"

in a command shell (cmd.exe) or the "run..." entry in start menu.
