“New Work Item menu still loading… (try again in a moment)”
There are not many results in the new work item menu still loading “try again in a moment” site:microsoft.com query, but luckily the first one shows a similar issue in Visual Studio 2005 with Team Foundation System 2005: the “Add Work Item menu still loading… (try again in a moment)”.
The solution is also very simple:
- Quit Visual Studio 2010
- Delete this registry key
- Start Visual Studio 2010
- Retry (can take more than a minute, but it usually works)
Not sure if this can fail in Visual Studio 2008 too, but if it does, just apply this fix with version number to 9.0, and if it happens with the Visual Studio 11 developer preview, change the version number to 11.0.
