I've just updated to 2107 (from 2102). Before updating I cleared the cache and hit 'rebuild symbols'. When I load VS2015 (update 3) all the items in the VisualAssist menu are disabled. If I roll back to 2102 then I do get the menu back

How do I restore functionality?
thanks
Paul

I just installed build 2107 this morning and had the same problem. Visual Assist appears to be disabled. Only a few menu items under the VisualX menu are enabled. And none of the VA functionality seems to be working. What is going on?

Sorry for the trouble. We have not been able to reproduce this problem but also received similar reports via our support system. We have removed build 2107 from the downloads page while we investigate. 2107 will remain available via the archive since it does appear to load fine for many users.

Can you please post your VS info in this thread (Help | About | Copy Info)? This might be the result of a conflict with another extension.

Most of the menu items are disabled. While the Help menu item is enabled, all the Help submenu items are disabled including the About Visual Assist item.

If anyone would like to try a test to help identify the problem (that we are not able to repro), please follow these steps to install a test dll:

Install build 2107.
Locate the VA installation directory as described here: https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W105
Download http://www.wholetomato.com/binaries/VA_X.2701.1.zip
Extract the new version of VA_X.dll from the downloaded zip to the VA installation directory.

Let us know if this test dll has the same problem or if VA loads correctly with it.

We have received word that the 2701.1 dll (from the above referenced zip) addresses the problem for at least one user.

OK, sorry. That now works. I don't know what happened, but after I said it didn't work I double checked the version on the VA_X.dll in the installation folder and it was still the 2107.0 build. So extracted the zip file again and moved the dll to the installation folder, verifying that it was the 2107.1 build. Then I opened VS2015 and everything was enabled. Guess I haven't had enough coffee yet this morning (PDT, 7AM here). Thanks for the help.

Thanks for trying the 2701.1 version of VA_X.dll.

If you don't mind trying one more version, please do the following (assuming VA 2701 is installed):
- Locate the VA installation directory as described here: https://docs.wholetomato.com/default.asp?W105
- Download the 2701.2 version of VA_X.dll from: http://www.wholetomato.com/binaries/VA_X.2701.2.zip
- rename the existing version (2701.1) of VA_X.dll to VA_X.dl1
- Extract the new version of VA_X.dll from the downloaded zip to the VA installation directory.

Does the problem recur or is it still fixed with this version?

If the problem recurs, then delete the new version and restore the previous (2701.1).

I screwed up version numbers, but the links are valid. The dll is versioned correctly as 2107.2 but the zip is named 2701. Sorry for the confusion.

No, this 2nd version goes back to the original broken behaviour of showing the VA menu as disabled. I've rolled back to 2071.1 which is working ok for me.

The build 2107 failure to load was case=98983.
case=98983 is fixed in build 2108.
