Visual Studio 2015 startup: problem occurred when loading the menu

Veröffentlicht von

This morning I had a strange error message, when I tried to start Visual Studio (version 2015, but it seems this also affects older versions):

A problem occurred when loading the Microsoft Visual Studio menu. To fix this problem, run 'devenv.exe /resetsettings' from the command prompt. Note: this command resets your environment settings.

Needless to say that the proposed command did not do the trick. After some digging in the internet I found the solution. Turned out that Visual Studio has problems, when the PATH variable becomes bigger than 2048 character.

The solution was to remove some items from the PATH variable:

Doing this and restarting the computer brought Visual Studio back to life.
