DevExpress menu disappearing from Visual Studio
If you've installed DevExpress' CodeRush (aka IDETools) for evaluation but can't find the DevExpress menu in your Visual Studio, look no further. In evaluation mode the DevExpress menu is simply disabled and cannot be made visible unless you enter a valid registration code.
In my Visual Studio I can actually see the menu item flicker for a split second and then disappear.Too bad DevExpress chose to do things this way. It certainly won't in courage me to buy the product.
The one remedy for this situation is that the keyboard shortcut for the DevExpress Options dialog is still available. Go "Ctrl+Shift+Alt+O" and you're there.
