  • I installed Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate Trial.  I ran it up and signed in to Visual Studio Online.  The above error occurred.  The application terminates. Brilliant! Any ideas to resolve this, please?

  • Hi Jean-Pierre,

    If I haven't misunderstand this issue, it occurs when you are signing your account online. Can you help me do a simple test? I need you to test this issue on creating some projects. If you cannot reproduce it when creating projects, please share your full exception info here. The troubleshooting steps should depends on your specific error.

    In general, I would recommend you repair Visual Studio from control panel first.
