Topic: Not working in SSMS 2014

I just installed SSMS 2014 and ViEmu 3.6 for Sql Server and there is no indication that ViEMU is doing anything. I can toggle to enable on and off but in either mode characters are simply entered into the document. (Win 7 x64. Also have SQL Prompt 7.0.0.62 installed)

I note that when I toggle ViEmu active i see the '-- Normal --' status message and after executing a script I got a popup 'welcome on viemu'. But the letter keys do nothing put enter characters

Interesting: ViEmu does not work in buffers which are automatically opened on startup. We are using SqlPrompt and it can be configured to restore open files. In those files ViEmu is not active. In any buffers opened after startup ViEmu works. (Note that it still does not support key mapping).

Re: Not working in SSMS 2014

Win10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB
SQL Server 2014 Management Studio
(This is a VM provisioned by my employer.)

I just installed Install-ViEmuSQL2012-14-3.8.1.exe.   After starting SSMS, there is no evidence that ViEmu is installed -- nothing on the Tools menu, nothing in Tools->Options.
Editing a .sql is normal Notepad-like editing.
What am I missing?

UPDATE:
I logged in with an admin account and installed ViEmu; when I started SSMS, ViEmu appeared when I started editing a script.
Back in my regular user account, ViEmu was not present in SSMS.
I started SSMS as Admin, and ViEmu is there.
Not ideal, but at least it is working.

Is this expected behavior, because it sure isn't desired behavior...
