Visual Studio, bring back Somasegar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed the latest update to VS and now my C++ project won't launch. The app did launch before this and it no longer works with this latest update. Absolutely no code changes. Press F5 to debug, symbols load then the app exits. A breakpoint on RegisterWindow doesn't even it. Press F10 to step into the app and VS doesn't break on a first step into the program.

    I'll take the crashing compiler over this new regression. How can I revert? Do I have to re-install VS? You know how long its going to take to re-install VS. What 4-5 hours? Well, thats only half a day. After Somasegar left, this VS app has gone down hill in quality. More regressions, more frequent patches and more regressions with the patches.

  • Hi Joel_Z,

    Do you test it in other VS2015 machine? Whether it still has this issue? Not debug your app, if you run it "start without debugging", how about the result?

    We have to narrow down this issue firstly, and make sure that whether it is the VS IDE issue or the project files.

    (1) Clean and rebuild the solution, and make sure that no compiled error.

    (2) If the same app works well in other VS2015 machine, we would think about the VS IDE. Not have to re-install it, you could repair it from the VS IDE, check it again.

    Best Regards,
