Solution for TFS2005/2010 and VS2005/2010: Add/New Work Item menu still loading (try again in a moment)…

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/13

Sometimes when creating new Team work items in Visual Studio 2010 connected to Team Foundation System 2010, you get a sub menu like this:

New Work Item menu still loading... (try again in a moment)

“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” 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:

  1. Quit Visual Studio 2010
  2. Delete this registry key
  3. Start Visual Studio 2010
  4. Retry (can take more than a minute, but it usually works)
The only difference between the Visual Studio 2010 (version 10.0) and Visual Studio 2005 (version 8.0) is the version number:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\WorkItemTracking\TeamMenu\AddWorkItemMru

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.
