/Setup (devenv.exe)


Forces Visual Studio to merge the resource metadata that describes menus, toolbars, and command groups, from all available VSPackages. 

devenv /setup

This switch takes no arguments. The devenv /setup command is typically given as the last step of the installation process. Use of the /setup switch does not start Visual Studio.

You must run devenv as an administrator in order to use the and /InstallVSTemplates (devenv.exe) switches.

This example shows the last step in the installation of a version of Visual Studio that includes VSPackages.
