VS 2010 Spontaneously Reboots In The Middle Of Unit Test-related Tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've noticed that if I try to run all the tests (CTRL+SHIFT+R,T) or use the test impact window, VS 2010 will often reboot itself.

    Though I can't provide any hard numbers on the probability of VS 2010 restarting itself if I hit CTRL+SHIFT+R,T, I'm pretty sure it should never reboot itself spontaneously

    I've already allowed the error reporter to send the gigantic blobs of data (aka "additional information").

    Is there anything else I can do to ameliorate the issue?

  • I've managed to reproduce this by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+R,A and the problem persists even after I did a repair install of VS 2010.


    I've also managed to crash it by building the solution (CTRL+SHIFT+B).
