After installing Parallel Studio XE 2017, I am getting the following problematic behavior from Visual Studio 2015:
1) On startup, there is a long pause and then I get an error message:
A problem occurred when loading the Microsoft Visual Studio menu. To fix this problem, run 'devenv.exe /resetsettings' from the command prompt. Note: this command resets your environment settings.
This happens every time I launch now -- I have to reconfigure my toolbars etc., which is a real problem.
2) Once I do restart with the /resetsettings option, often trying to load a VS project results in an error message about an invalid parameter. A second attempt to load the project file usually works.
Is there a way to fix problem #1? This is a productivity killer. #2, not so much.
