[11493]Frequently VS 2008 crashes

while working with my large VB solution i notice frequently crashes of VS 2008 (today for example i had more than 5 crashes). Unfortunately they are not reproduceable. I had them in following cases:

  • open the R# options screen
  • open the template explorer
  • in "Move to another namespace" refactoring when opening the list of existing namespaces
  • open intellisense popup with Shift-Enter
  • ...

Common in all cases is that the IDE freezes for 10 - 20 seconds just before the crash and that R# Exception reporter isn't shown (i have activated the "Show Report Error dialog each time..." option). Just the standard Visual Studio Error Window ist shown.

If i can do anything to track down the problem let me know...

Regards
Klaus

Hello Klaus,

Do you see any error messages under Control Panel | Administrative Tools
| Event Viewer after Visual Studio crashes? Thank you!

Hi Andrey,

the attached text file contains the information of 2 application events which seems to be related to the crashes.

when i think about the crashes, they mostly occurs when Visual Studio was idle for some time (e.g. because i was in a meeting or discussing with a co-worker)

Today i tried to reproduce the crashes. I had no success until i came back from lunch. I had three open VS instances on my PC. I closed two instances and tried to open the R# options screen in the remaining instance. After 30 seconds VS crashes. I have attached the dump file from this crash. Maybe it can help you to find the reason.

Regards
Klaus

and here is another dump file. I accidentially hovered with the mouse over the Templates Explorer tab (i have pinned it permanently at the left of the edit window). The window was shown incomplete and frozen for 10 to 15 seconds and then VS crashed.

the latest EAP builds are much more stable. I can't reproduce the crashes any more.
