Installation

The installation ruined my VS settings so now I have to try and configure everything again. Use with caution, your mileage my vary.

We are sorry that installing Clone Detective caused trouble on your system. However, according to Microsoft installing packages should not cause a reset of all settings anymore. Could you please provide more details what settings you did lost (e.g. toolbars, shortcuts, fonts & colors)? Doing so could help us to correct this behavior.

Kind Regards,

I just had the same problem. During installation I got the message that VS crashed (VS 2008 SP1), which I closed before installing Clone Detective. After starting VS it initialized for first startup, and all my keyboard shortcuts and text editor settings were gone - I suppose all other options too, but these were easily recognizable.

The same happened to me.

This is really interesting. We explicitly tested for this. Of course, we are very interested in fixing this bug. Our product certainly should not destroy your VS settings...

Could you please provide more information about your system? We are particularly interested in the following pieces of information:
  • Error message and corresponding event log entry of VS crash during setup
  • Setup log (re-run setup via command line msiexec.exe /i CloneDetectiveVS.msi /l*v log.txt)
  • OS version, service pack and language
  • VS edition, service pack and language
  • Other VS versions (e.g. VS2003 or VS2005)
  • VS addins and packages (e.g. ReSharper, VisualSVN etc.)
Thank you very much.

The addin doesn't show in visual studio and I  also had an exception thrown during install, and lost my ANTs Profiler addin and I'm not sure what else yet. Event log shows :

Faulting application devenv.exe, version 9.0.30729.1, stamp 488f2b50, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, stamp 00000000, debug? 0, fault address 0x00000000.
