Visual Studio 2010 will not start

    Question

  • Hi

    I been trying to run Visual Studio 2010 Premium but it crashes after the initial Splash screen. Its worked in the past ok but its been a while since I have run this program so its not easy to track what I have installed that may have caused this. My operating Systems is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

    The error in the event log is:
    Faulting application name: devenv.exe, version: 10.0.40219.1, time stamp: 0x4d5f2a73
    Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.17651, time stamp: 0x4e211319

    I have carried out a repare and that did not make any difference. I also noticed that Expression Blend 4 will not start either.

    Any help on this would be very much appreciated.

  • Hi

    I have resolved issue with VS2010. I installed Process Monitor and attached it to another .Net program that was not working and found:

    This lead me to completely removing .Net4 framework and reinstall after registry clean. I then reinstalled VS2010 and everything is now fine :-)

  • Hi WayneRussell,

    1. If we reboot the operating system to safe mode, do we have the problem? This can help to isolate whether any other applications are interfering with Visual Studio. Note that some features (like IIS) are not available under safe mode. Please check whether this can apply or not. In addition to safe mode, we can also suggest “clean boot”: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353.

    2. If we create a new user account, do we have the problem? This can help to isolate user profile corruption related causes.

    3. If we use “devenv.exe /resetsettings”, does it solve the problem? It restores Visual Studio default settings.

     

    Best regards,

    Lucy

  • Hi Lucy,

    I have tried out all these things apart from 1. which refers to XP and considering rebuilding the machine from scratch.
