Problems with launching Blend Preview 2.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey!
    I got 2 laptops that have Visual Studio 2008 and Blend Preview 2.5 on them. I also have ALL .NET Frameworks & updates installed on them.
    Whenever I try to open Blend 2.5 I got this message:
    "Microsoft Expression Blend has encountered a problem and needs to close. We're sorry for the inconvenience."

    If I upload my computer with safe mode - Blend works.
    I've tried reinstalling\ uninstalling\ repairing MILLIONS of times!   
    I also changed some configuration at the "Environment Variables" - NADA!
    I'm clueless : (

    PLEASE ASSIST!!!!

    Thanks..

  • Hi Ortal,

    I recall facing this issue previously, and later I found out the issue was specific to Vista Ultimate...i'm not sure what the workaround was, i'll try find it and get back to you here.
