“Edit” button for Datasource is disabled in Visual Studio

Problem: Sometimes the “Edit” button, that opens the visual editor for Xtract RS connections, is disabled.

Solution: Log on as the user that has a disabled “Edit” button. Go to the folder VsEditButtonFix in the installation folder of Xtract RS (default: C:\Program Files\XtractRS\VsEditButtonFix) and run the corresponding .reg file for your Visual Studio version, e.g. vs2015-edit-fix.reg for VS 2015. You would also find a readme file in the folder.
