I noticed some missing menu items in the VS2005 (like clean, rebuild, and many others) but i continued by using the commands from other locations; until I got stucked! I wanted to export a form as a template but the Export was not available in the File menu.
The details of my environment are:
Since, I installed Resharper for the first time, the first option that came to my mind is that its due to Resharper. I tried to explore different options in the Resharper and VS specially the Key Mapping but no result. I was only left with the option to uninstall Resharper and I did it. But to my surprise, the problem was still there.
In such a situation, I call my rescue agent GooGle. The first suggestion provided by the agent worked well and my problem was solved.
I had installed SQL Server 2005 for the first time (initially, I was using SQL 2000 as per client requirements) but I don’t considered it bcoz it’s a Microsoft product and it was least expected to interfere in the scenario. I was WRONG. This problem occurred due to a bug in it.
Hope it will also solve your problem if u faced such an issue.
