Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express Crash Fix

If you are experiencing intermittent crashes with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express (this may also work for other versions and the full Visual Studio package), this is a simple work around solution.

  1. Go to Start Menu
  2. Go to All Programs
  3. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express
  4. Right click mouse on Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express (or name of version you have)
  5. Select Properties
  6. Select the 'Compatibility' tab
  7. Check the box in 'Compatibility Mode' and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
  8. Check the box in 'Privilege Level' Run this program as an administrator
  9. Click 'Apply'
  10. Click 'OK'

Now go to Microsoft Visual Studio and run the program again, it should now work crash free.
