Parallel Studio XE 2017 u 2 causes VS2015 text editor to stop working

Just installed Fortran update 2 and its integration w/Visual Studio 2015 u 3 on 64-bit Windows 7.

Now when a document is opened in the usual way, from Solution Explorer, the tab is shown, but the document window is empty. The problem persisted even if VS was restarted, and happened with projects did not include Fortran sources as well as those that did.

When the system was rebooted and VS started again, the text editor works normally. So it must be an installer problem.

There is a related thread in the MKL forum, see https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-math-kernel-library/topic/713744 . The suggested fix there is easy enough to try before doing something more drastic and time-consuming.

The suggested fix is:

 

This error is caused by a corrupted Visual Studio cache.

Close all Visual Studio tasks that are running, and delete all files in the folders ComponentModelCacheand MEFCacheBackup

these folders are located in:

\Users\YOUR_USER_PATH\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0

Works for me!
