SOS! Designer always crashes in Blend for Visual Studio 11

    Question

  • When I opened Blend for Visual Studio for the first time to work on the snapped view of my Windows 8 app, the designer crashed. I reloaded it, restarted Blend, but it just doesn't work.

    Here's the error:

    An unhandled exception has occured.

    System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: [1692] Designer process terminated unexpectedly!

    Edit: I've even re-installed Visual Studio 11, Blend still crashes.
