Code Analysis Tab Missing

Posted on 2006-03-29

Dear Experts

 I’ve using Visual Studio 2005 Professional (and specifically Visual Basic) and want to run the Code Analysis, but for some strange reason I can’t find the Tab!?

Any help and advise I’ve read starts from selecting the Solution Properties and going to the Code Analysis Tab?

I’ve used it before in the beta version and to be honest I’m not sure when it “went missing”

I’ve checked my VS2005 installation and I’ve selected all VB Components, although I haven’t include C#, J# etc as I don’t use them

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to make the Code Analysis Tab available?

Many Thanks,

    Code Analysis Tab is on the bottom. Sometimes you have to click hte bottom right part to move to the last tab

    I know it's supposed to be there but it's not there (honest!) and it's not showing in the build menu either.

    I'm assuming there's a setting hidden somewhere or I missed something in the install (although if I did I missed it on both my machines)

    WHat VS edition do you have. I have Team edition and the CA tab is there. Maybe you have another edition and it is not supposed to be there?

    It's VS 2005 Proffesional Edition (Version 8.0) as far as I'm aware it should have it.

    Hi datavation;

    It seems that option is only in the Visual Studio 2005 Team System Edition only.

    This is a link to the Visual Studio 2005 Product Line Overview that compares the different editions:

    And a link to the Visual Studio 2005 Team System Edition options:

    Well that’s rather irritating if that’s the case, as it means Microsoft have removed during one of the releases because it certainly was in Professional at one point as I used it and I’ve never had the Team Edition.

    OK, well thanks to you both, I’ll split the points as both took the time to help and award “zero” points to Microsoft!!!
