Visual Studio 2010 XAML Editor Crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • About a week ago, Visual Studio 2010 SP1 would out of the blue crash every time I tried to open any XAML file in the designer.  I've been able to pinpoint the problem, and it appears to be caused by installing the following windows update:

         Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2512827)

    This update seems to just upgrade Microsoft Silverlight from version 4.0.50826.0 to version 4.0.60531.0.  Does anyone have any ideas why this would cause VS to crash every time I open a XAML file?  I've tried starting devenv with the /log option, but there is nothing out of the ordinary in the log.  I've also tried attaching a debugger to the devenv process, but it never seems to break when the crash happens.  The only relevant information I could find comes from the Application Log of the event viewer which I've attached below.  I don't have any problems when I rollback the security update, so that is my temporary solution, but at some point I'd like to figure out why this is happening.

    Thanks,
    Elias

  • Hi

    Even I am facing the same problem. I have tried to uninstall the version: 4.0.60531.0 of Silverlight and install 4.0.50826.0, but then the problem is

    whenever I load my project in Visual Studio, it shows a notification that I need to install the 4.0.60531.0 version before proceeding( at this point the entire VS is stuck). The notification doesn't go away until I have installed the  4.0.60531.0 version and once I do that opening my xaml causes the appcrash!. So basically I end up bot being able to work on either of these versions!!.
