OS: Windows Server 2003 Standard
S/W: Visual Studio .NET 2003

Unable to set the profile in Visual Studio .NET 2003 to Visual C# Developer, everytime profile is selected, it reverts back to Visual Studio Developer.

What do I need to do to get the S/W to stay in that specific profile?

    Have you tried reinstalling?

    I assumed it was a glitch and I seem to be wrong. I've tested the different profile settings in the My Profile page and VS Macro Developer also auto reverts to Visual Studio Developer.I belive that Visual Studio Developer is the same as Visual C# Developer and that's why it auto changes.

     Is there a specific reason you need it to be on Visual C# Developer? You can always use the (custom) setting to get the desired configuration.

    Reinstalling does not resolve the issue (have tried that several times).

    As to custom settings,... I have no problem using custom settings, however the help filter isn't populated and appears not to do so. Any advice on that?

    Sorry, it seems I was not clear.

    You can not get it to stay in that specific profile.

    Here is why... is the same thing as Visual Studio Developer.

    The program is working as intended so no, a reinstall would not resolve the issue as it is working as intended.

    The profile selector just has a list of premade interface configurations, don't try to break the software and make it do something it's not ment to do.

    So again to answer your question it's working as intended.

    I hope this helped and sorry for the confusion.
