When I load my Visual Studio (C++ 2010 Express and / or Visual Basic 2010 Express, it's even happened with Web Developer 2010 Express and C# 2010 Express), it never seems to work properly.
As I'm sure you know, at load a start page is meant to show with a list of previously opened projects and the latest news on the product, but for me its just a solid colour of purple from the background colour of the application. If I manage to load a project
it does an initial refresh and seems fine, but when I scroll the code it doesn't refresh, the same can be said for when I goto edit the code.
I found that resizing the window and / or changing its maximized / minimized state generates a refresh and allows me to view changes, I've also found that restart my computer a few times or re-logging allows the VS collection to work fine. Interestingly
it will work, but then if I close it for more than a few hours it stops, and vise-versa.
I've re-installed both C++ 2010 Express and Visual Basic 2010 Express at least twice, I also have the latest drivers and service packs.
Any help will be appreciated, I hate coding in Notepad++ and then debugging in VS.
