    Saddest moments in life - your favorite ide changes

    Ever get use to your editor and the way it is configured then one day you use it to find out somethings different. You don't know how it happened, and more importantly don't know how to fix it. For me, I find this kind of thing to be incredibly frustrating. It impedes your work flow and creativity and all out ruins your day.


    Well, I love msvc++ 6.0. I just do, like I love IExplorer. There may be better or more efficient IDE's out there but I just find it nice and cumbersome. One of the things i love about it is when I create a new file say 'main.cpp' and add it to my workspace i can start typing in the file with syntax highlighting. Well, I use to could....(love that english).

    All of a sudden, now its not setting the default language of .cpp files to c++. I have to manually right click, go to properties and change it to c++.

    Not only that, but now its not autocompleting. I "use to could" do
    Code:
    typedef struct { int a; } astructure; 
    astructure var = {0};
    And when I typed "var." i would get the autocomplete "a" to popup. Thats gone now too!

    Why god, oh why god have thee forsakened thou?

    I welcome you to this thread with the oppurtunity to rant about your favorite editor (wether it be coding or other) and that one time the default configuration got foobar'd.

    BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY: I implore those of you with experience to msvc++ 6.0, please please tell me how I can reset my editor defaults to get this nonsense back to the way it was. I already uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail.
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    Try deleteing everything under C:\Docs'n'settings\urName\Application Data\*... if that fails, delete eveything under C:\Windows.
