CodeRush XPress Menu Item Missing

Developing on Visual Studio 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
I downloaded and installed CodeRush XPress 11.2 and found the DevExpress menu missing.

The final post in the following forum lead me down the right path.

“This is actually an issue with the express version of CodeRush DevExpress where Microsoft requested the menu to not show with the express version. Thank you Microsoft Monopoly!!! But there is always a way around the system. You can force the menu to show by adding the following DWORD in the registry and restarting visual studio.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Developer Express\CodeRush for VS\10.1]
If it does not already exist, add the “HideMenu” there:

HideMenu = 0 (DWORD)”

This lead me down the right path, with a small change to the registry key as shown below, I was in business.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Developer Express\CodeRush for VS\11.2]
