Visual Studio 2008 Crashes When Using ASP.NET MVC (Nasty, NASTY Bug!)

by Jon Davis 16. April 2009 10:05

Some people (like me) have had issues with Visual Studio 2008 suddenly disappearing without errors when the developer user opens up an .aspx file, a .master file, or some other code file in an ASP.NET MVC project.

Had this show stopping issue beat me black and blue over the last 24 hours. I finally got past it when I used the /safemode switch with devenv.exe, but that disables all my lovely add-ins like Resharper. :(

Finally, one of the team members pointed me to “NDP20SP2-KB963676-x86.exe”. He had the same issue and tried to run this hotfix and it worked for him.

It seems to be working so far for me, too. The hotfix is here:

File for Windows XP: NDP20SP2-KB963676-x86.exe
