Visual studio 11 ultimate display "black" screen when startup

    Question

  • Hi all,

     My visual studio 11 displays “black" screen when it starts, does anyone know how to resolve the issue without re-installation?   I didn't get license renew prompt this time.  I had the similar issue for my Windows 8 once before, I re-installed the Windows 8.

  • Hi Rob,

    are you able to go to Tools | Options - Environment | General.  What is the color theme set to?  If it is set to Dark, does changing to the light theme help?

    thanks Rob,

  • Hi Rob,

    just need a quick clarification, are you referring to the splash screen is all black or the start page within Visual Studio is all black?

    much appreciated,

    mike

  • Hi Mike,

    Not splash screen.  everything (including start page) is 'black' background. Everything is black and white. I could still use it to open project, but very hard to use. 

    Thanks
