Visual Studio Not Starting: ERROR: No InprocServer32 registered for package [Visual Studio Logging Package]

    Question

  • Visual Studio had previously worked fine for me without any problem and I have not made any changes to my system -not that I am aware of at least. Suddenly, when I open it, it will display a dialog box with the following message:

    The 'Visual Studio Logging Package' package did not load correctly. The problem may have been caused by a configuration change or by the installation of another extension. You can get more information by examining the file 'C:\Users\...\ActivityLog.xml'.

    Upon viewing the log file, I it shows the following error:

    No InprocServer32 registered for package [Visual Studio Logging Package]

    C:\...\IDE\vslog.dll

    Can anyone offer solutions for this or an explanation for this?
    Thanks in advance!

  • Assuming VS 2012, can you open regedit.exe and navigate to the following key?:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0_Config\Packages\{2DC9DAA9-7F2D-11d2-9BFC-00C04F9901D1}

    Then see if the "InprocServer32" entry exists with the value "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\\Common7\IDE\vslog.dll"

    If not, open the Visual Studio 2012 Command Prompt with admin rights and execute:

    devenv.exe /setup

    (that should regenerate the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0_Config key)

  • Hi Carlos - I was able to locate the InprocServer32 in the specified path you gave me. It exactly matches what you have. 

    But for some reason when I attempt to Edit a Script in a SSIS/Script Task object I get an error message stating that it cannot locate. 

    I am running Visual Studio 2014.

  • Visual Studio 2014 does not exist, that could be the problem ;-) Just kidding...

    Try to reinstall VS 2010, VS 2012, VS 2013 or VS 2015 RC.

  • Had a similar situation, installed a Visual Studio 2015 and suddenly even previous version of VS 2013 stopped loading.

    In my case it was PATH variable, which ended exceeding the limit.

    Suggestion to Microsoft would be to have a check as part of Visual Studio installation process and at least notify the end user.

  • I had the same thing happen to me.

    I wonder if the problem has to do with a non-standard install path for VS. Mine is c:\vs12.

    In the registry, I found that the path had been munged from c:\VS12\VC# to c:\VS12VC#.

    I found every path in the registry with "VS12VC#" and fixed the path.

    I had the problem with installing Mysql for Visual Studio, and then this issue came up for Visual Studio 2013.  The solution that worked for me was:
    I did try looking for the registry key, it was there.  But under 12.0_Config.  But really worked was in my downloads folder I still had the 'VS2013.5.exe' (The update 5 installer).  I ran that and it hit 'Repair'.  It took some time, but after a reboot, mine was fine.
