Code coverage in VS2012 IDE RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I'm using VS2012 Premium version

    in VS2012 IDE under display Items for Text Editor (Tools->Options-Environment->Fonts and Colors) not having the options "Coverage Touched Area", "Coverage Not Touched Area" and "Coverage Partially Touched Area"

    I have installed 2 times VS2012 even then not found these options.

    on some other machine the same version installtion is giving those option.

    Please suggest if you have any ideas to see these options.

  • Hi mougeelita,

    If you perform a complete full installation of VS2012 Premium, you should be able to see these 3 options. Maybe there are some settings or add-ins which prevent them showing, please try the following commands to see if they are helpful:

    1). Run devenv /ResetSettings to reset VS settings.
    2). Run devenv.exe /SafeMode to prevent loading add-ins.
    3). Run devenv.exe /ResetSkipPkgs to avoid loading problem VSPackages.

    Please take a look at this MSDN article for further information about devev.exe switch:

  • Hi

    Did you happen to have VS2010 installed on this machine at a prior time? We have a known issue here and are working to address it.

    Thank You

  • Hey mougeelita

    The workaround is to use devenv /resetuserdata

    Thank You
