  • User565442435 posted

    Whenever I try to open VS 2015, I get a "something caused the program to stop working correctly..." error and it just crashes. I looked at the event log and found this. Any ideas on what's happening or how to fix it?

    Update: So running VS in safe mode works just fine, which leads me to believe it's an add in. The problem is, I don't even remember installing an add in. How do I find a current list of add ins for VS, and then just remove them all?

    Hi,

    Update: So running VS in safe mode works just fine, which leads me to believe it's an add in. The problem is, I don't even remember installing an add in. How do I find a current list of add ins for VS, and then just remove them all?

    You can use "Devenv.exe/ResetAddin" to remove commands and command UI associated with the specified Add-in.

    Please let me know if you need any help.

    Regards,

    The issue is I don't remember installing any add ins, so how do I look at the currently installed ones, when I can't open VS?

    Hi,

    By default, the Addins file is located  in the <Visual Studio installation folder>\Common7\IDE\Addins.
