Hi Guys. I have installed Visual Studio 2012 Professional RC on a Windows 7 Ultimate PC. I am unable to find any sign of Page Inspector. I cannot find it when right-clicking a .cshtml file in my MVC 4 RC project. It is missing from the list of browers and
does not appear in any other menu.
I know Page Inspector works in Visual Studio 11 Professional Beta, which I had previously installed.
I wonder if Visual Studio 2012 Professional RC borrows things from Visual Studio 11 Professional Beta?
Thanks for any help.

Can you check if Web Tooling Extensions is installed in your Extension Manager? If it's missing, you probably need to install it again (it's part of the default install, but might have been removed somehow).

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I have uninstalled VS 2012 and I am just re-installing it to see if that fixes the problem. I did install the Ultimate version of VS 2012 and I am sure Page Inspector was in that. I will print your question and answer after the
new install finishes. Thanks.

Hi again, The Web Tool Extentions were installed. Now, at least the View Page Inspector entry appears when I right-click my project in the Solution Explorer. However, when I click on the menu item, although the web page appears in the top half of the Page
Inspector window, a script error shows saying the property 'addEventListener' was null in the IDE/CommonExtentions/Microsoft/Eureka/HtmlTools/common/toolwindows.js file and the bottom half of Page Inspector does not show.
I guess all I can do is remove all Visual Studio versions on this dev machine and start again lol.
I will let you know the result after removing everything and then installing VS 2012 Professionl RC...

At last, for anyone still following this problem, I have solved it, by re-installing Windows 7 so no addition apps were installed, the used the web install of Visual Studio 2012 Professional RC and now everything works :) Rather oddly, the installer placed
Visual Studio 2012 in the Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0 program folder. So now I can use Page Inspector without error. I must say, apart from the colour scheme, the latest version of Visual Studio is much better tha VS 2010, in my opinion. Well done the VS
