  • Hi zula Jariwala,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    Refer to the error message “Microsoft.VsHub.Server.HttpHostx64.exe has stopped working”, I found some workarounds as below:

    1. What’s your antivirus software? There are a couple of known incompatibilities that might be causing this as below, for the detail information, please check this: HttpHostx64.exe has stopped working
    -    Astrill (check for ASProxy* in the system directory): Workaround is to either add HttpHost to an exclude list in Astrill (see workaround in this Connect item) or remove it
    -    LavaSoft (check for LavasoftTcpService* in the system directory): Only known workaround is to remove it, uninstalling Webcompanion by Lavasoft works for some other community members

    2. Go to the path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared and rename the folder VsHub to others

    3. Make sure VS is close and VSHub is not running in Task Manager, install this update: Update to improve Diagnostic Tools in Visual Studio 2015

    Best regards,
