VS 2012 stops working when enabling SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running VS 2012 as an Administrator and am attempting to enable SharePoint for a new C# HTML Client LS application.  I've successfully signed on the the SharePoint site and confirmed by validating.  But after I click OK, VS stops working.  Has anyone else experienced this?

    Thank you.

  • Hi Brian,

    I just troubleshooted this error with another customer that was trying to upgrade from Preview 2. Unfortunately he had to perform a clean install of VS Update 2 to correct his bad install.

  • Hi Brian,

    I've seen this happen when Office Tools hasn't been installed correctly.  The first thing I would try is to open a Developer Command Prompt as admin (under Start -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 -> Visual Studio Tools) and run the command:

    devenv /setup

    If that doesn't fix the problem, the next thing to try is to uninstall "Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012" from the control panel and then reinstall from this link.  Let me know if that doesn't fix it for you.

    Thanks,

  • Chris,

    Thanks for your suggestions.  Unfortunately, they didn't work.  However, I did get the option to debug it this time and reached this error message.  Does this help any?

    Thanks again,

    Brian

  • That error message points to a problem with your SharePoint Client Components.  If you see "SharePointClientComponents" in Add/Remove Programs, uninstall that and then that same Web Platform Installer link should reinstall them for you.  Let me know if that doesn't work.

    Thanks,
