  • Hi Sonal,

    It works fine on my VS, I'm not sure if this happens on your all project or just this one.

    For testing you could create a new WinJS project and debug to see if such issue happens or not.

    If NO, the issue might be on your current VS project. Is the project migrate from win8 project? Or can you create a demo for problem reproduce?

    If YES, it seems the problem located on your IDE(Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows). Try to reset your IDE by following steps:

    • Please open Windows Explorer, and navigate to  <Visual Studio Installation Path>\Common7\IDE (by default is <C:\Program Files \Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE>); 
    • VSWinExpress.exe /SafeMode: Launches the IDE in safe mode loading minimal windows.
    • VSWinExpress.exe /ResetSettings: Restores the IDE's default settings, optionally resets to the specified VSSettings file.

    If still no help, I suggest you try repairing your VS or uninstall it and then reinstall it.

    Hope it would help you and Best Regards,

    --James

  • Thanks James for the detailed reply.

    This problem happens to all of my projects. I opened a sample and see that DOM explorer is empty. I created a dummy project with just a template and still DOM explorer is empty.

    Visual Studio 2013 is installed in Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0 folder right? Your solution asks to see in 11.0 folder. Please let me know if I'm wrong, because I don't see any file like VSWinExpress.exe /SafeMode in my installation folder.

    How do I repair this installation? 

    Thanks and Regards
