  • Hi Sooraj P S,

    Thank you for your post.

    According to the version number, your VS edition is VS 2015 with Update 3 right?

    If you fail to open any .cs files in VS, just to confirm that if the root cause is related to the VS itself,

    Firstly, please go to Control Panel >Programs >Programs and Features, Select Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 and right click on 'change'>'repair', to do a repair first.

    Then, please create a new C# project the same type as example, if it works fine, the issue may be related to your project.

    If the problem still persists, I suggest you download a good ISO to repair and re-install again.

    Best Regards,
