Why does Visual Studio 2015 not display code markers?
If the Parasoft DTP Plugin for Visual Studio is reinstalled, Visual Studio 2015 may fail to display code markers that indicate analysis findings or code coverage in the editor. This is caused by a Visual Studio known issue (see MEFCache bug breaks text adorments in any package for details).
To ensure that code markers are properly shown, clear the Visual Studio MEF cache each time you reinstall or updated the Parasoft DTP Plugin. Use one of the following options:
- Use the Clear MEF Component Cache extension that will automatically clear the MEF cache (download here).
- Manually delete the cache directory. Depending on your installation details, the cache directory may be available in the following locations:
- If the Plugin has been installed with the default options: %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0\ComponentModelCache
- If the Visual Studio registry suffix has been specified with the
<SUFFIX>parameter during installation: %localappdata%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0<suffix_name>\ComponentModelCache
