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”
