PostPosted: Developer Documentation and Help System, Document explorer does not show document contents Top

Visual Studio 2005 Professional

I can see both index and contents in Developer Documentation and Help System window, but clicking any node displays nothing in the right frame. It did not begin abruptly. For some time dexplorer showed topics if clicked some nodes in the contents tab. But later it ceased showing anything altogether.

Any ideas Thanks in advance.

Give this a try:

1. Export all your Settings through Import Export Settings (every single one)

2. Close VS2005

3. Go to Start -> Run and type devenv /resetuserdata

then

4. Go to Start -> Run and type devenv /setup

Now check if Document Explorer is behaving correctly.

If it is then go ahead and import the settings you previously exported.

Let me know if this helps.

No, unfortunately it changed nothing.

IMHO the problem is with IE settings rather than VS ones. Attempt to view any document with ms-help: schema fails even if I try to do it in IE outside of Document Explorer.

The problem exists when I personally enter domain. If I enter as a local user OR somebody else enters domain from my machine, all works perfectly. Any ideas as to what kind of setting may be broken

Anyway thanks for your attempt to help

Sorry it didn't help.

I'll see if I can get someone's else insight on this.

Hello Salex - can you try clearing out your IE temporary files cache and see if that changes anything

Sincerely,
