Fix this bug with your software and Visual Studio 2017
Have it not break Visual Studio 2017 even when selecting that you don't want it to be integrated with it.
The problem is that we could no longer get latest version after installing your software and then rebooting. Here is an email that I just sent to a group of people that have had the issue for at least a week before we narrowed the problem...
We found what caused the issue, can reproduce it, and fix it.
The issue is with Redgate’s software, specifically SQL Prompt for us.
This is the reason that John never had the problem and I wound up with the problem 5 weeks later and Craig had it from the beginning.
• Craig has always had SQL Prompt installed on his machine and he always had this issue.
• Approximately 5 weeks after installing VS 2017, I installed SQL Prompt and then began having the issue.
• John never installed any RedGate software and therefore never had the issue.
Today, Craig reinstalled SQL Prompt and the issue came back. He deleted the same folder that we suspected is the resolution to the issue and the problem went away.
I, Ray, went to verify that this was truly the problem and installed SQL Prompt and then I started getting the issue again myself. I removed the aforementioned folder again and the problem went away.
In summary, you can run SQL Prompt but after installing it and rebooting, you have to remove the aforementioned folder for the problem to go away again.
Cause of Issue:
RedGate SQL Prompt
Refer to previous email regarding the folder to delete.
