Can not open/uninstall/install visual studio 2012 and 2013 RRS feed

  • 问题

  • There are visual studio 2012 and 2013 in my computer.

    But recently both of them can not work. After the logo appearing, the program will be shutdown automatic and windows debug reporter will appear. When I tried to re-install the VS, I found the same problem that the logo appear and disappear then nothing happened. I can not find proper solution. Please help me. Many thanks.

  • Hi RichieZH,

    You couldn't open the VS IDE, am I right? Do you mean that you also couldn't uninstall it from the Control panel?

    >>But recently both of them can not work.

    Do you mean that it woked well before? If so, do you install any extension tools/add-ins in your VS or window Environment?

    (1) Run the VS in safe mode, at least, we could know that whether it is related to the add-in.

    (2) Run your VS as the admin.

    (3) Please also install the latest update package for your VS, like the VS2012 update 4, the VS2013 update 5.

    Note: We often install different VS versions from the old version to the new version one by one.

    (4) Please also run them as the admin, test it again.

    If still no help, maybe you could uninstall them in command line with/force when you couldn't uninstall them in Control Panle or re-run the setup file.

    And then re-install the VS IDEs.

    Best Regards,
