caused a crash when trying to go to the work items for a project
System.NullReferenceException was unhandled HResult=-2147467261 Message=Object reference not set to an instance of an object. Source=Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Common StackTrace: at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Common.VsipHost.GetUserSubKey(Package package, String subKey, Boolean writable) at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Settings.GetRootKey(Boolean writable) at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Settings.GetValue(String name, Object defaultValue) at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Settings.GetCachedValue(String key, Boolean defaultValue) at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.Settings.get_TemplateEnabled() at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.PowerTools.TemplatesViewModel.<Refresh>d__1.MoveNext()
Update: updated to latest version and now this error has gone :)
Quite useful but also contains some serious flaws!
Watch out for the options: 1) "Enhanced Scroll Bar" - this can slow the editor down to a crawl at times.
2) In "Tabs and Windows" - do not check "Maintain pin status if document is removed from well"! It causes DevStudio to crash when doing routine operations like running up an app in the debugger, or lock up with resizing the main window. If you are getting faulting module: KERNELBASE.dll with exception code 0xe0434352 in DEVENV.EXE reported to your EventLog, then there is a good chance that it is this option!
Unfortunately, this 2012 version is missing the superb functionality from 2012 the Ctrl+2 to quickly navigate to any class/member in the current source file. This is a pain, because now to navigate to class/member in current source file, one must reach to the mouse and use either solution explorer or the combobox menu, none of these is as quick and elegant as was the keyboard only popup solution with CTRL+2 in PowerTools 2010 version.
Could not find file 'C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Extensions\bpum0wxo.q45\ColorizedSignatureHelp.pkgdef'.
It seems to be able to do this when you open VS 2012 without a solution/project open however.. Still quite a perplexing issue, I think.
Is there a guide or examples for making the reg ex color assignments work for tabs? I cannot get anything to match.
Do the reg ex types have to go before the project types in the list? Is there a way to re-order the list?
+1 This feature was a HUGE productivity booster. Even with the improvements of 2012 (and my addition of ReSharper) I still don't feel as productive if I can't quickly see the members with the interactive tooltips. Please consider this as a feature for 2012/2013.
