I don't know as to why my Visual Studio Toolbox items are no longer working.
The icons have been transformed to document icons and when I try and insert them, I just get the paragraph tags inserted.
I attempted to repair and then reinstall, but of no use.
Do you know as to what I can do?
Any suggestions are most welcome.
Thanks a lot.
Visual Studio Toolbox items are no longer working
Hello Hay Lin,
The solution to your problem is simple.
You will need to do the following:
You will need to locate the hidden files in your visual studio toolbox items directory and delete them. The hidden files you will look for and delete are the following: toolbox.tbd, toolbox_reset.tbd, toolboxIndex.tbd, toolboxIndex_reset.tbd
The above name hidden files are usually found in the following directory: <drive>:Documents and Settings<user>Local SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftVisualStudio<VS version>, for instance C:Documents and SettingsJAVIER.VILLARREALLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftVisualStudio8.0 .
So just trace them and delete them all.
After you have deleted them, you need to start visual studio.
The toolbox items in the application will be reset in the proper form during the process.
