Can’t move cursor in VS 2005 text editor

A customer ran into this issue where they can't move the cursor in the text editor and other things didn't work such as control-Z and import/export settings.

The workaround is:

  • Shutdown Visual Studio

  • Click Start -> Run

  • Type in "devenv.exe /resetuserdata"

  • Open Task Manager and wait for devenv.exe to finish running

  • Restart VS

Thanks goes to James Lau for providing the workaround for this.
