VS 2012 Projects wont load after windows updates.


  • After shutting down my computer and letting the windows updates run on Nov 24th and starting this morning Nov 30th, I get the following error when trying to open my projects:

    Unhandled exception at 0x62DF03A7 (clr.dll) in devenv.exe: 0xC0000006: In page error reading location 0x1E9A7008 (status code 0xC0000185).

    In the debugger

     Call stack location: 


    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi jasonwriter,

    Please create a new project with Visual Studio 2012 to make sure whether there also has the same problem. If new project doesn't has any problem, please remove the origin project files to the new project one by one.

    If you can't create new project, there may be something broken with Visual Studio when upgrading windows. Please repair your Visual Studio 2012 first.

    In addition, please check the ActiveLog.xml under the path of %AppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0. This file will log all operations when you operate Visual Studio.

    Best Regards,
