Visual Studio 2012 stops working RRS feed

  • User52519179 posted

    Visual Studio 2012 Pro running normal or as administrator

    When minimizing VS often happens that it stops working and reboots itself.

    I analized the Activity Monitor Log file and noticed this error, everything else was ok:

    "Couldn't save the PRF C:\Users\my user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\1033\cmdUI.PRF 8000ffff E_UNEXPECTED"

    I looked everywhere and can't find a solution for these crashes that are causing me to, at least two times, loose my work.

    Any help would be nice.
