From your description it sounds as though your Visual Studio registry settings may be incomplete or corrupted. I would recommend that you try the following command :
If that does not fix the problem try :
devenv /resetsettings /resetuserdata /setup
The next time you start Visual Studio it should then be reset to its defaults.
First, as Navy developers, our accounts don't have any admin privileges on or PCs. All software installation/updates are performed while a privileged "PC admin/Installer" account is logged on.
Second, and I hadn't checked this before, running VC 2.3.1 for VS 2013 while logged in with the "installer" account will show a bunch of COBOL colorization items. Even before running the "fixes" suggested above.
Anyway, after running each of the above fixes separately while logged in with the "installer" account (because I get "access denied" under my account) I would log off and log back in with my regular account, run VS and check the COBOL colorizations available. Always, only the two Code Coverage items were visible.
We then tried executing the fixes in a command prompt started "run as administrator" with the "installer" account within a regular Windows logon under my regular account. Again, still can only see the two Code Coverage items.
Anybody with another suggestion, besides quitting the Navy?
