Doesn’t it suck when you get so used to a plugin that you assume it is part of the original product? To the point where you refuse to use other people’s system if they don’t have that plugin installed… yes I know!
Sadly when that same plugin decides to “Go Rogue” it really wipes the smile of your face. I had that happen using one of the most popular extensions for Visual Studio: Productivity Power Tools (free). For those of us using the Ultimate version of VS2010 Going to the Data Menu is a lost cause. Schema Compare and Data Compare both crash VS upon clicking.
For those in the same pickle… I have found a hack to keep on working but it really doesn’t solve the issue.
