I had the exact same error a couple of days ago when I installed VMware Workstation 6 beta version on Windows Vista. If you are experiencing the same, I have reported this bug.
In the meanwhile you can start Visual Studio without the add-in with Left Shift and then disable the add-in at startup, or just re-run the installer of VMware Workstation and remove the debugger extension.

What a coincidence, I just installed VMware Workstation 6 Beta. ;-)
You just saved me hours of troubleshooting. Most gracious thanks.
Wednesday, January 03, 2007 1:33 AMI was also having this problem. Sure enough, I just installed VMWare Workstation 6 Beta as well. Disabling th VS plugin fixed it, thanks. :)

Excellent! I had the same problem and had completely forgotten about VM 6 beta installing that IDE support. Re-ran setup and removed the IDE support and everything is working much better!

Thanks very much - I owe you one for this, you just saved me hours of futzing around with my new vista install to try and figure out what it going on...
Tuesday, January 16, 2007 2:36 PMThank you thank you thank you thank you.
Wednesday, January 17, 2007 6:25 PMThank you Gabriel! Been trying for a few days to figure this out.
Saturday, January 20, 2007 5:39 PMThis has saved me a LOT of trouble - thanks a LOT..!

The problem is the VMDebugger Addin in VS 2005. But you can't disable the startup in the Addin-Manager.
To hack it, use regedit to go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft
\VisualStudio\8.0\Addins\VMDebugger.Connect and set LoadBehaviour Dword value to 0 (instead of 1).
Now VS 2005 works fine.

Ahhh... I was so worried that it'd turn out to be some inherent issue with Vista. Thanks man! You saved me an OS reinstall!
Friday, March 16, 2007 11:16 AMExcellent !!! was struggling for few hours and your Post has saved me lots of hassel
Wednesday, April 04, 2007 1:35 AMI'm surprised you were seeing this as late as mid-March; I'm assuming you were running an old beta from January or early February. Irregardless, Vista host support has been fixed, so yoiu can download the latest release candidate at http://www.vmware.com/products/beta/ws/ . Feel free to respond to this thread with any questions or comments about the VMware plugin or post them to the Workstation 6 Beta forum at http://www.vmware.com/r/discussion_forums.html. All feedback on this feature helps greatly.
