I have the following issue: Visual Studio 2012 menu is broken: many items are missing, such as Error List, Bookmarks, Task List, etc. many more.

I assume the reason why this is happening I've installed Team Explorer 2012 first. Then much later - Visual Studio 2012.

What have I tried so far:

- Reset particular menu bar from customize settings
- Reset global Visual Studio settings
- Uninstall Team Explorer 2012
- Install Visual Studio 2012 Update 1
- Repair Visual Studio 2012

Nothing helps.


This is an exact duplicate of by me again. Because I didn't get a notification of any kind as did always previously so didn't answered in time and ticket was closed.
The result of collect.exe attached.

By design?? ARE YOU GONE NUTS?? This is a blocking issue!! Only system drive wipe helps. Post workaround at least. AND FIX.
