  • Hi Fernando,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    Since the error come for all the VS projects. May be some operations corrupt your Visual Studio.

    For this case, reinstalling and repairing your VS looks best solution for you.

    >> Meantime, What is the best way to install VS 2015 without 3rdparty tools, is there have any good documentation to follow.

    When install your VS. I suggest you to select the Custom option And you don't select third-party SDKs during the initial setup.

  • Hi Fernando,

    Could you tell me when did the error occurred? Open the project, create the project, or build the project?

    Is the error still occurred when using other projects?

    Please restart your machine, test it again.

    I also did a research for the error message. And I found it may be caused by third party Add-ins or packages.

    Please open Windows Explorer, and navigate to  <Visual Studio Installation Path>\Common7\IDE (by default is C:\Program Files \Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE), and then run the following command:

    Devenv.exe /SafeMode, This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems. Thus ensuring stable execution.

    If in SafeMode, VS works well, it is probably related to the add-ins/extension tools, maybe you could disable/remove them, then try it again.

    On the other hand. I suggest you could try to install VS2015 update1, then try it again, may be the issue will be solved.


    Best Regards,

    This error starts 21th Dec, before that I worked smoothly, The errors comes for all the VS projects, I can start the project, I can build the project, but I go to code screen then after few seconds the error message "Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 has stopped" displays. I did restart everything but same error comes.
