Every time I start Visual Studio and load my SharePoint 2013 solution, the Active Deployment Configuration is resetted to "Default". So I manually have to select "No activation" every time after startup. This setting seems never to be stored or the loading of this is buggy.

In my last comment I made a mistake, the "active deployment configuration" is located beneath the "SharePoint"-Tab in the project settings which would surely not exist if no developer tools are installed. So from this point of view, it's correct to fix this bug in context of the developer tools and not Visual Studio. Sorry for this again, this issue can be closed now.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Indeed the problem is solved by installing this additional component. But due to the fact that this bug occurs in the standard Visual Studio, I think, the fix for this bug should be deployed by a standard Visual Studio updatemechanism. Not all SharePoint-developers (like me until now) do have installed the Developer Tools by default...
