I am using VS 2015 on a solution with C#, C++ and Fortran projects. Today I just upgraded to Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 5 from Update 4. When I open a Fortran or C++ file it shows as blank in the VS editor. The C# files look OK. I have checked the files with a text editor and they still contain my code. If I compile a Fortran project it seems to compile correctly. It is very difficult to work with code I cant see! Any suggestions for fixing this problem?
Well now I feel foolish because a reboot of the computer solved the problem, just restarting VS2015 was not enough. I have been using Visual Studio with the Intel Fortran Compiler for almost 10 years and this is the first time I have ever had a problem like this.
We've seen this problem before with VS2015. See https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/how-to-fix-ms-vs2015-text-editor-is-blank-after-upgrading-intel-parallel-studio-xe
