Crash on first startup with Visual Studio C# 2010 Express


#1

I’m using Visual C# Express 2010 and the first time I try to start my project running on my FEZDomino board the entire Visual Studio environment crashes. However, it seems to run stable on subsequent startups.

Is anyone else experiencing this?


#2

Yep first time after reboot, vs2010 express crashes - you get used to it, I think I have mentioned this previousally and there is a thread around somewhere


#3

I’m glad you posted this… I thought I was the only one… I was putting it down to the USB, it only crashes when a FEZ is plugged in on first startup.

Cheers Ian


#4

Must be Express related. Never had anything like that in Ultimate edition.


#5

I’m using the visual studio professional 2010 and when i connect the Fez panda the first time the visual studio shutdown, but i think the problem comes from the PC memory, but not from the software version.


#6

My Ultimate version crash on a Fez project for the first time today. Do not know if it was because my Fez wasn’t connected prior of launching VS2010.

I’ll have to test further to say if I can repeat the scenario.


#7

My Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate crashes on the first startup whether or not I have the FEX Panda II attached. I also get what I call a “mini-crash” of VS 2010 whenever I open a NETMF solution…in that case, I see a brief “Searching for a solution to this problem” gas gauge, and then it recovers and successfully opens the solution.

The problem started after I installed the NETMF SDKs yesterday, and is very repeatable. I’ve been using this installation of VS 2010 for many months for Windows and ASP.NET software development, and never had this sort of problem until the NETMF SDKs were in the picture.

Added note: I am running with VS 2010 Service Pack 1, installed in March. Haven’t had any problems, though, until after installing the NETMF SDKs.


#8

Is everyone who is experiencing crashes with VS2010 (not express) running SP1?


#9

I’m using VS2010 Express too and it always crashes on first startup. I’m incensed that Microsoft can’t fix this. I had hoped that the SP1 update would fix it but it didn’t.


#10

I’ve seen the issue, but it’s certainly not every time. Always on the first startup when it happens, though. I am running SP1.


#11

those crashing… what if any extensions do you have loaded into visual studio?

Hmm, I have more than that loaded without any issue. I do note a few security packs have been installed. Is this happening on both 32bit and 64bit platforms?


#14

Mine is 64-bit, but VS itself is 32-bit. There’s no 64-bit version of VS.


#15

@ godefroi - we can dream of the 64bit release of VS… someday !


#16

VS2010 is a full .NET multitargeted app. If you’re on a 64-bit OS then it is 64-bit. It’s determined by the version of the .NET framework you have installed.
