    "A Problem was encountered initializing commands and menus. The merged file was loaded, but it contained no valid commands. Please run setup and select Repair."

    I uninstalled Q4 2009 and installed 2010_1_519 AJAX. Silverlight Q4 I uninstalled but did not install Silverlight 3 2010_1 because I need to locate RIA files for Silverlight 3.

    I'm able to use VS 2008 but when I tried to fire up VS 2005, I got the following message.

    Any advice on how to proceed? thank you -

    Hi Michael,

    I would suggest you to reset Visual Studio IDE. During this reset all menu items are re-initialized so any existing problem should be fixed.

    You can reset the IDE by following these few steps:
    1. Close all Visual Studio 2005 instances;
    2. Open the Visual Studio 2005 Command Prompt;
    3. Run devenv.com /setup command;

    If you need additional assistance, do not hesitate to let us know.

    All the best,

    Hi, Petar,

    I had located this solution and tried it but to no effect. I've tried it again but still when i try to load VS 2005 I get the same message.

    Thanks,

    Hi Michael,

    Can you try running Visual Studio 2005 with log enabled and send us the log file?
    Here are the steps to do that:
    • Start a Visual Studio 2005 command prompt
    • run devenv.exe /Log C:\VS2005Log.txt
    Send us the VS2005Log.txt file, located in your C:\ drive.

    I hope the log file would give us some more information about what caused the error.
    Kind regards,

    Here are the contents of that file. It describes itself as VS 8 though it is the VS 2005 prompt. I had both versions of VS working side by side with no problems up to this point.

    Hi Michael,

    The version Visual Studio 2005 is 8.0, so there is nothing to worry about that.

    The log file denotes that something in the VS installation has broken though - the IDE gets shut down right after the Loading UI library step.

    I'm afraid we don't have any other information regarding to that. I would recommend that you run the Visual Studio 2005 setup and run a repair, followed by installing VS2005 service pack.
