LINQ (or BLINQ) toasts your Refactor Menu in VS2005

, posted: 11-Jan-2007 17:07

I loaded up the BLINQ demo to see what it could do. That was a bad move, as it had the side-effect of killing off the Refactor menu. Here's how to get it back... All the steps - they need to be completed in the sequential order as follows: 1. Start up RegEdit.exe 2. Open registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Packages\{A066E284-DCAB-11D2-B551-00C04F68D4DB}\SatelliteDLL] 3. Edit the "Path" value and change it from "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC#\VCSPackages\1033\" to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC#\VCSPackages\" 4. Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE (I found this part easiest to do in a CMD window). 5. Run Devenv.exe /Setup 6. Run Devenv.exe /ResetUserData 7. Run Devenv.exe /ResetSettings CSharp If all goes well, you should now see a Refactor menu when you right click on in a code window in Visual Studio 2005. source: Ting Liang
