Dotnet -h "Process is terminating due to StackOverflowException." RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently my system has stopped working for dotnet. I am looking for guidance as to how to recover.

    All commands are not working. I am able to run dotnet and receive the usage information. But if I run "dotnet -h" or any other commands I get this response:

    Process is terminating due to StackOverflowException.

    This is with all commands that I have tried in powershell and in the Visual Studio package manager.

    Cheers, Jeff
