Reset the Visual Studio Environment

After installing TFS 2008 SP1 I had some problem with the Team Explorer, When I clicked on the Team Explorer nothing happens.
I tried to Reinstall Team Explorer even reinstall the TFS but the only thing that save me is to reset TFS settings.

Tip: After installing TFS go to “Tools” > “Import and Export Settings…”, and export your settings. If you hose it in the future, you can import those saved settings.

Reset Settings

  1. The command “devenv /resetsettings” will restore Visual Studio back to its original factory state. If you have previously saved your settings from option 1 above, you can pass them as a parameter: “devenv /resetsettings <SettingsFile>”.

  2. The Command “devenv /setup” Forces Visual Studio to merge the resource metadata that describes menus, toolbars, and command groups from all VSPackages available.

  3. The command “devenv /ResetSkipPkgs“Clears all options to skip loading added to VSPackages by users wishing to avoid loading problem VSPackages, then starts Visual Studio.

    Note: if you have vs2010 and vs2008 and you want to reset the 2008, you will need to specify all path.like:

    “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe” /resetsettings
