How the Language combobox on the Options Dialog is being populated
Some people are asking how the Language combobox is populated in the Options Dialog. Once you have installed IDE tools and open the Options Dialog, you will see that the Language combobox is empty. But after some work in Visual Studio IDE this combobox is being populated with items. So, when and how is it populated?
The answer is that this combobox is populated with items when you open up some source files in Visual Studio IDE and have a corresponding language service for that file. So, if you open up an F# file (.fs) and you have the FSharp language service installed, you will see a new entry.
You may have a list that contains some of the following items:
