APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • This error occurs because the userOptions.xml file (typically
    located under C:\Users\<My User
    ID>\AppData\Roaming\IBM\vsnet2005) is invalid, possibly zero
    bytes.
    This APAR will clear the settings in the userOptions.xml file
    on uninstall of the Visual Studio add-in and deploy the default
    values instead of the old settings when installing again.
    Also while activating a connection or creating a new connection
    if invalid userOptions.xml file is found, it will create new
    userOptions.xml file with default values instead of the old
    settings.
    

Local fix

  • To workaround the error:
    1) Close Visual Studio
    2) Delete the userOptions.xml file
    3) Restart Visual Studio to automatically recreate the
    userOptions.xml file
    After doing these steps the "Error occurred while invoking the
    menu" message should be resolved.
