Visual Studio 2012 stop responding on start-up....possible fix

I don't really know what happened to my Visual Studio 2012 but removing and re-installing did not work. Visual Studio kept not responding when loading up. Finally what seems to have solved it was this simple command line: devenv /ResetSettings. I hope this saves you time...

Thanks! Worked for me too! I previously had tried /SafeMode and /ResetSkipPkgs without success.

Thanks a lot. This worked for me too. In my environment, devenv is located in the folder "Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE".

In my case, it did not help me. And to complicate after running this command my Visual Studio no longer opens. Can anyone help me please?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE
