No problem. We can pick it up when you're back.

Hi Josh,

Here's what I emailed to one of DPack users this weekend, which I think is experiencing the same problem. I thought I'd post it here FYI.

Well... I'm pretty confident I just fixed the problem. :)

I was able to get a hold of a laptop where it was crashing VS like that too. After eliminating all the new stuff (for v3.0.1 vs v2.9.3) it was still crashing, which prompted me to look at the project setup, last major version vs. the previous one, where all used to work fine. Turns out the only thing that's changed is the target framework version - from 2.0 to 3.5. After Googling it I came by MSKB article 963676, which is basically for this same error you get. This gotta be a breaking change introduced in one of the latest .NET 2.0/3.5 SP updates. What a weird issue this.

I reworked DPack to remove minor .NET 3.5 dependency and it's back to being 2.0 only. It also works on this test laptop now. If it all checks out then I'll release an official update ASAP.

HTH.

Hi Sergey,

Have you managed to make any progress with a bug fix?

I'm pretty sure the latest version 3.0.3 fixes that problem, or at least that was the case for 2 other similar crashes I helped troubleshoot. Have you tried it yet by any chance? Thanks.

Hi Sergey,

Unfortunately it doesn't fix the crashes I'm experiencing. Would you be able to give me a download link to the last version of DPack before it started crashing?

Josh,

That's too bad. Could you see if my earlier post http://www.usysware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=138#p903 test suggestions make any difference with the latest v3.0.3? You can just disable all features to begin with, restart, and start enabling one at a time, beginning with say 'Context Menu' features and moving onto browsers as I mentioned in that post.

Thanks.

Josh, I have had problems in VS 2010 which crashed whenever ANY XML file (be it XAML, regular XML, XSL, WSDL, or whatever).
The solution was to do a Repair on VS 2010.
