Visual Studio 2005 Bug

I encountered a terrible bug in Visual Studio when I installed my DirectX SDK for summer 2006. All of my keyboard configurations were erased, and I couldn’t even use my backspace key. The problem occurred in the beta, and supposedly there was a patch released. Anyways, here is how you fix it.

  • C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Username>\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0
  • Delete all files
  • Open Visual Studio
  • Tools->Import and Export Settings
  • Reset all settings
  • Select “No, just reset settings”
