Visual Studio 2015 zeigt keine Icons an 3

Nach der Installation von Visual Studio 2015 werden komischerweise keine Icons der Action Buttons angezeigt, und zwar an diversen Stellen in Visual Studio.

Ein paar Beispiele:

001

002

Woran liegt das?

Als erstes habe ich mal kurz Visual Studio im Logging Modus gestartet mit dem Parameter, wie in dem folgenden Artikel beschrieben:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms241272.aspx

  • Devenv /log Path\NameOfLogFile

Im der resultierenden XML Datei mache ich mich dann auf die Suche nach einem „Verdächtigen“ und finde die folgende Zeilen:

004

003

Cannot find the requested resource: ‘Menus.ctmenu’.
Cannot find the requested resource: ‘VSMenus.ctmenu’.

Danach mal Google gefragt, ob der die Fehlermeldung kennt?

Folgender Eintrag auf MSDN beschreibt das Problem, kennt aber keine wirkliche Lösung dafür (Profil Löschen… echt?)
https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/4eff982d-a1b3-4f01-a77e-9e1a9db8bfb8/icon-missing-on-toolbar-in-visual-studio-2015-vs-2015?forum=vssetup

Wer kennt die Lösung des Problems und bringt mir meine ersehnten Icons zurück? 😉

    Hi Sandro,

    I’m so glad that your issue has been resolved! If you run into issues in the future I encourage you to file a Connect issue or use the VS Send-a-Smile/Frown feedback button (top-right corner smiley), as those end up creating a paper trail for the issue 🙂

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Sandro,

    The ctmenu entries showing up in the activity log most likely not the problem. Those are generally the result of poor/incorrect package menu item registration. Your problem is one we are looking into. Does the “Image Service” show up in your activity log? Did you see a package load failure message for the “Image Service”? There could also be an issue where the LOCALAPPDATA environment variable is missing. Does the registry key “HKCU\Volatile Environment\LOCALAPPDATA” exist and contain a value similar to “C:\Users\\AppData\Local”? You could also try launching VS as administrator to see if that helps.

    Regards,
    Andrew

      Hi Andrew

      First of all: Many thanks for contacting me and looking into this issue!

      Having a look in the Activity XML and searching for “Image Service”, i find the following two entries:


      1915

      InformationVisualStudio
      Begin package load [Image Service Package]
      {1491E936-6FFE-474E-8371-30E5920D8FDD}


      1916

      InformationVisualStudio
      End package load [Image Service Package]
      {1491E936-6FFE-474E-8371-30E5920D8FDD}

      So there’s no Package load failure since right after “Begin package load” there’s the Step “End Package load”.

      The registry Key “LOCALAPPDATA” did not exist, and I added it with the corresponding path on my Machine to the AppData Path, so to “C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\AppData\Local”.

      Now I tried to start Visual Studio 2015 again and… tataaa… it works! It even works starting as “non-administrator”.

      Best regards and thank you very much for your help on this issue!
      Sandro
