Visual Studio 2017 Community crashes on startup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have recently installed Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition and can't get it to work, everytime I try to start the program I get grey screen with white text saying "Visual Studio 2017" and right after that the program crashes.

    I already tried to repair and reinstall it, but nothing seemed to help.

    This is the ActivityLog.xml
