installed PTVS 2.0RC:
not working!
install directories seem strange, take CommnDB folder as example:
The path of CommonDB folder is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\2.0\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\2.0\CommonDB

notice that ...\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\2.0... repeated

probably this makes VS not able to detect PTVS

uninstalled PTVS 2.0RC and tried PTVS 1.5
worked well!
The path of CommonDB folder is
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\1.5\CommonDB

Windows 7 SP1, 64-bit
VS Ultimate 2012

this is strange.

a couple of questions: by CommonDB do you mean CompletionDB?

can you please uninstall all PTVS versions on your machine & then reinstall PTVS 2. RC again and see if the problem persists?

Yes, it is CompletionDB.
I tried uninstalling all versions of PTVS and installed PTVS 2.0RC again, the problem remains.

we've never seen this before. we'll need an installation log to debug this. are you comfortable setting a regkey?

the instructions are here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300

if you can send us the trace file (or privately if you prefer to ptvshelp at microsoft.com) we can take a look at it right away.

thx.

I am not an administrator of the machine. So I probably can not do that.
BTW, can this be the reason, I mean that I am installing PTVS not as an administrator?
