Dear sir or madam,

I am in urge of assistance regarding my VS2005 TS / VS2005 SP1 TS on Vista.

I started by sumiting my problem to MS Connect, but they totally ignored me, and that why I hope to get help here.
For the original request, please visit this URL: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx FeedbackID=243085

My problem is severe - if i open any file in the VS IDE (except for CSS files) VS2005 crashes - and I mean crashes!

I am left with the option to send a error repor to MS, which i usually do (and the crash must be big, as the processing time making the report takes close to 10 min. and the transfer as well take 10-15 min (upstream: 1024KB)).

I have never had a problem like this under XP, why i later (after discovering that MS did not have a similiar case to mine) installed the SP1 for VS. No change in my experience (well - except waiting 30 min for the installation to complete !).

I am running the whole thing on a clean Vista Ultimate (32 bit) install, and the hardware is Intel P4 3.6Ghz CPU, 2GB RAM.

Please help - I do not want to downgrade my OS ...

Did Visual Studio 2005 ever work for you under Vista

Worst case you might try resetting your Visual Studio settings by passing the /ResetSettings argument to the app:

devenv.exe /ResetSettings

Do you have any Add-ins that might be to blame If you've got any of them you might try disabling them as well.

Hi Brendan,

I tried your /ResetSettings switch, but the problem is still present.

Well - yes and no - the web development has never worked (and like the original request for MS explains, they are all located on a remote website using FPSE and VSS), but the normal class library coding works fine.

I just installed the whole damn thing this saturday, and i have been trying ever since to get it to work.

I have no add-ins installed.

Thank you for your assistance though.

1) what happens when you open the same file in Visual Studio by double-clicking it in the Windows Explorer

2) do you run devenv.exe as an Administrator

3) have you tried it with UAC disabled

Hi there,

I have tried opening my web site from the File System option instead, and this work as a workaround.
However, in order for this to work, I had to check out all files to the originator on the server, so the solution is far from optimal.

I hope that Microsoft will fix this serious error, as all the web sites in my work uses FPSE combined with VSS.

There is no way, we will switch to the File System option.

To answer your questions, i figure 1 would be the above workaround, where I work with the files directly instead of over the IIS/FPSE/VSS (as with working with class assemblies and so forth).

Number 2 - yes, I run the VS2005 as an Administrator (and the user account is under a domain in an administrator group in AD).

3 - this one I have not tried yet, as I understand it is some of the security options for mallware etc. under VISTA.
I might give it a try though.

I got the exact same set up and the exact same problem. I'm dual booting from XP to Vista so I'm not dead in the water but I simply cannot use VS 2005 and open a remote web site. Any luck

I have installed Vista Ultimate from MSDN. On clear Windows (without any optional drivers and programs) I have installed

Visual Studio 2005 Professional EN. But when I try opening Visual Studio it always closes !

In Event log is description like previous posts:

Faulting application devenv.exe, version 8.0.50727.42, time stamp 0x4333e699, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549b87a, exception code 0xc0150015, fault offset 0x0002b216, process id 0xd18, application start time 0x01c751532be98c50.

The same error is when I try open documentation of Vista SDK (after installation it on my system)

I have try SP1 for Visual Studio 2005 and SP1 Beta on Vista but the error with ntdll.dll doen't disappear.

I know 2 people who sucessfully use VS 2005 on Vista Ultimate and M$ claims that Visual Studio should run on Vista.

What about this error Can anyone help me

Yes I did both of those. It generally works until I try to open a remote site I've been working on. It seems that this is prevalent where people are opening up remote sites using FPSE and VS crashes. Local sites work fine...

I had the same issue with ultimate. Including several installation issues. After days of trying to find a fix for these errors, I started to remove everything to get just core components. It finnally worked when I disabled aero. I turned everything back on and kept aero off and still VS 2005 worked. Try this!

I have the exact same problem under windows vista business. VS2005 SP1 + Vista Patch. Only happens when opening up remote sites via FPSE. I get the exact same error message as Michael Mortensen in the post above.

I've been working with Microsoft on this. There is a hotfix patch that I'm testing and it works. It seems to be a problem with source-safe.

I also have the same problem as described. Visual Studio 2005 fails when opening a remote project while running Vista Ultimate. If there is a patch for this I need to get it.
