  • Hi Simpsonitos,

    Thank you for your post.

    If this issue happened when creating a new Silverlight application, the cause could  be related to VS itself.

    Commonly, the checkbox of the host is enabled.

    Did you install any third-party add-in that may disable this checkbox?

    Firstly, please repair your VS :
    1.Go to Control Panel >Programs >Programs and Features
    2.Select Microsoft Visual Studio and click on 'repair'.

    You may try some devenv switches in command prompt:
    a.Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.
    b.Run devenv /ResetSkipPkgs in Command Prompt.
    c.Run devenv /Safemode to see if you can apply it correctly. This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems.
    1. Reboot the machine in Safe Mode. This can isolate some third party application/driver's interference.
    2. Switch and try a new user account. This can rule out the possibility of corrupted user profile.

    If the error persists,  then you may try to running devenv.exe /log <log path> in Command Prompt, the log files will be generated in the <log path>.

    Then you can check and analyze the log file to see if there are anything incorrect.

    Please upload the file to   and share the link with us.
