Hard Visual Studio 2008 Crash
Visual Studio 2008 has been silently crashing when I open projects which is pretty bad when you are trying to get work done. By “silently crashing” I mean there is no dialogue window with any explanation, there is no beep, nothing. The process just silently vanishes.
I checked the Event Viewer and it is a .NET Runtime error: “.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.1434 – Fatal Execution Engine Error (79FEC5F0) (80131506).”
It sounds serious to me, so I went into Programs and Features in Vista, right clicked the Framework 3.5 item selected Uninstall/Change and then chose the Repair option. Visual Studio 2008 works fine again.
