  • Hi Nitin,

    First of all, I suggest you could try to restart your machine and then try to launch your VS as admin check this issue again.

    If it still could not help you, I suggest you could try the following commands in command line to check if it helps.

    (1) devenv.exe /safemode

    (2) devenv.exe /resetsettings

    (3) devenv.exe /resetuserdata

    In addition, I suggest you could try to close all the processes in the task manager before you start the VS2013.

    Or you could try to use the process monitor tool to check which processes are using during launching the vs2013.


    If the above suggestions did not work, please use the command "devenv.exe /log" to gather the logs when your VS crashes so that we may know more details. Please upload the log file to OneDrive and share the link here.
