Visual Studio Error On Launch RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just finished my Visual Studio 2015 Community setup.

    And when I launch it up, it comes up with an error:

    When I click OK it launches fine, but then everything is frozen and I can't do anything.

    I also can't close it, the only way to close it is using task manager.

    Anyway to fix it?

  • Hi oliver,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    For this error message , firstly please repair your VS :
    1. Go to Control Panel >Programs >Programs and Features
    2. Select Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 and click on 'repair'.

    Then try some devenv switches in command prompt:
    a. Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.

    "%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /Resetsettings

    b. Run devenv /resetuserdata  to reset the settings if you're having trouble with the GUI.
    "%programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /resetuserdata

    If the error persists, please feel free to let me know, use http://aka.ms/vscollect   to gather the installation logs. After using it, you will find vslogs.zip from %temp% folder. Then
    upload the file to https://onedrive.live.com/   and share the link with us.
