Visual Studio Add Reference not working

Hello All,

Suddenly, I encounter a strange problem in my Visual Studio .NET environment. My 'Add Reference' does not work at all. When I go to 'Projects'->'Add Reference', a pop window should open up, right? But, I don't see the window. Nothing happens. Even I uninstalled and reinstalled my VS .NET. Still, I face the same problem. Any ideas? (two months ago, my add reference was working fine)

Seems you are not the only one, I found this solution on the internet, not sure if it works though because I don't have the problem :-)

"I've discoved that I can fix it by selecting Tools/Add In Manager and then hitting Cancel on the manager window. After that Add Reference works."

Hai RonaldBiemans,

Excellant. It worked. Do you know why VS .NET behaves weird?

Thanks for your quick response.
