Visual Studio 2013 Community has stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Suddenly (starting first thing this morning), when I open the IDE for VS 2013 Community I get the error message saying it has stopped working. If I click debug, it basically does nothing. The only choice is to close it.

    How do I fix this? Was there an update issued last night that causes this?

  • Hi LarryS10,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    The others who has met the similar issue with you solved it by the following solutions:

    1. If you don't install visual studio 2013 update 5, please install it.

    2. open Visual Studio and disconnect from your Microsoft account

    3. Temporary fix: Block app.vssps.visualstudio.com on firewall or add "127.0.0.1 app.vssps.visualstudio.com" to HOSTS file.

    4. Please open an administrative CMD window and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE and run these commands: devenv.exe  /resetuserdata

  • Thanks, Joyce!!

    Simply installing VS2013 Community with Update 5 did the trick. I didn't have to do any of the other steps.
