customized toolbars are gone again

Hi

I installed the build 202 a couple of minutes ago, and all my customized
toolbars are gone again. They are deleted completly not only in the toolbar
also in the customize dialogbox.

How can I save the toolbars? I try to figured it out how VS 2003 saves them
but cannot find them in the registry.

Hello Michael,

while we have no exact solution to this problem, we suspect that disappearance
of
custom toolbars is a side effect of running devenv.exe /setup command that
is necessary
during installation of VS extensions.

Hello Dimity

Ok, maybe that's the reason, but do you know how VS 2003 saves the toolbar
settings? If I know how the toolbar settings are stored I will write a small
tool to save and restore these settings.

After every installation of R# (both 1.x and 2.0) I had to rebuild my custom
toolbars and that costs me about an hour every time.

Regards
Michael

Hello Michael,

I've checked it and it appears that under VS 2003 devenv.exe /setup indeed
causes disappearance of toolbars.
Moreover, I've found a reference to this issue:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vsnetaddin/message/1328

It seems that the issue has been fixed in VS 2005. Unfortunately, I have
no idea
where custom toolbars are stored and how to save and restore them. We'll
try to get more information
about this problem from Microsoft newsgroups.

Update: as we've just learned, all VS UI user customizations are stored in
the file
"\Documents and Settings\%Current User%\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\1033\CmdUI.PRF"

I've made a simple experiment:
1) Create a custom toolbar
2) Exit VS
3) Copy CmdUI.prf to CmdUI.bak
4) Run devenv /setup
5) Run devenv - the custom toolbar has disappeared
6) Copy CmdUI.bak to CmdUI.prf
7) Run devenv - the custom toolbar is available in toolbars, though unchecked.
After enabling, it displays fine.

So it seems there is way to write a tool or script you were talking about.

Hi Dimitry

I saw your discussion on the microsoft.public.vstudio.extensibility and so I
try some things before. Maybe this worked but take a look into this file.
There are a lot of R# entries inside. If I install a new version of R# I
don't know if all the entries are pointing to the right version of R#. I
will try that next time.

Thanks for your great support

Hello Michael,

ok, please let us know about the results. In theory,
since ReSharper initializes its UI in VS on each startup, that fact
that file *.prf refers to it somehow, should not prevent ReSharper
from functioning correctly. But it's hardly possible to say without
trying this method in practice.
