Constant crashing using VS11 Ultimate

    Question

  • Hello,

    I'm currently working on a XAML/DirectX interop app and using VS11 Ultimate Beta. I have an issue where VS11 is crashing constantly. It happens about every 5 minutes. It could be from just typing something, tabbing between windows, idling just reading my code. I have no clue what's happening but it's really frustrating, I can't get a constant stream of thought together. I also lose all of my undo capabilities so if I make a mistake I can't revert back, I also lose all settings of my UI (Which files are open, which are tabbed and which are pinned, etc.).

    Is anyone else experiencing this? I've looked everywhere but no luck.

    Thanks!

  • Hello,

    during the crash, do you get a windows error reporting dialog, if so, before you dismiss the dialog and go to the folder c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\temp.  Are there any *.hdmp files?  If so could you copy it out to another directory, zip it up, if it is under 10 megs, then you can email it as an attachment to mikewong at microsoft.com otherwise, I can give you an upload location if you want to email me with your contact info. 

    much appreciated,

    mike
