  • Hi mada deux,

    >>I have installed update for vga yesterday and faced the error today

    First I suggest you could run your VS in safe mode. Check whether some add-ins and extensions affect your visual studio.

    You could refer to the following document about how to run in safe mode:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms241278.aspx

    Also you may try to repair your Visual Studio or install update of your Visual Studio then try it again.

    If still no help .I suppose it is more related to the windows Update for vga.

    In this case, I suggest you could uninstall the update for vga then try it again.

    >>where i can get the log file for crashing issues in visual studio ?

    Please open the Develop Command Prompt for VS. Then input the following command line:

    devenv /log

    The log file is in: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Version\ActivityLog.xml


    Best Regards,
