I really like Visual Studio 2005 but...


5+ crashes in a row is a little much.

And I wasn’t even in the designer. And yes, I rebooted. It still happened.

I don’t know exactly what I did to fix it, though. Let’s just say heavy use of the save button and having another instance of devenv up and attached to the other process. Just in case I needed to copy and paste a call stack somewhere. Of course, that’s when it began working.

Oh well.

NOTE: Don’t take this the wrong way. I still love VS2005 as an IDE. However, it still has quite a few issues. The most annoying of which is the flickering while in the designer. And no, I never got that one up in the debugger either.

UPDATE: For more information on this, see my new post here.
