VS designer failed to load

    Question

  • Hi Team,

    i am creating the windows UWP apps in visual studio 2015 update 3 and facing one issue.

    I am getting the error on designer "System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException
    [8516] Designer process terminated unexpectedly!"

    From eventviewer I can see below error:-

    "The program XDesProc.exe version 14.0.25420.1 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel. "

    Please let me know how can I fix this as I am not able to anything on my VS designer.

    Thanks,

    NItesh

  • Hi NiteshKr12,

    Please try to repair your Visual Studio to check whether the problem is in your IDE.

    By the way, if possible, please also install the 10240SDK and target to 10240 to check whether it has the same issue.

  • Hi NItesh,

    Thanks for your post.

    Could you please tell me what's the version of your VS2015 Update3 and your windows system?

    I did a test in my side and I can load the designer successfully.

    Please try to install the VS2015 Update3 KB3165756 in Tools->Extension and Updates

    Also double click the project->Properties, set the target windows version as Windows 10(10.0 build 10240) then load the designer again.

  • hi Xiao,

    VS 2015 update3 version:

    Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2015
    Version 14.0.25422.01 Update 3

    Error in Event viewer: "The program XDesProc.exe version 14.0.25420.1 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel."

    Also the visual studio is fully updated.

    Also the target version available is only 10586.

    Thanks,

    Nitesh

    Thanks for your response.

    >>does this issue occur because i have not check 10240 version in sdk.

    Please try to install the  following features:

    After install it, open your Visual Studio, create a new UWP application,  set the target windows version as Windows 10(10.0 build 10240) then load the designer to check whether you can load it successfully.

  • Hi Lake Xiao,

    Thanks for your response. I have installed the VIsual studio with only 105856 version in my personal machine and it is working fine. Could there be some policy restriction in Corporate network.

    thanks,

    Was your issue solved? As far as I know there is no policy restriction. If it fails to load the designer when the version is 10586 then you could try to target the version to 10280.
