PRB: Nothing happens when trying to create new Performance Session in VSTE/SD

June 18th, 2007 · 1 Comment · TFS 2005, TFS Tips and Tricks, VS Development Tools

You want to create a new performance session, therefor click on the corresponding menu item and NOTHING HAPPENS?


This behavior happens when the Performance Add-In got disabled somehow. To re-enable it try running:

devenv /ResetSkipPkgs

If this doesn’t solve your problem Dave Lubash from the Visual Studio team recommends in his post on the MSDN forums to

repeat it after doing:  devenv /ResetAddin and devenv /ResetSettings.

Good luck!

    I used to get an object reference not set to instance of an object. Worked for me. Thanks!
