Hotfix Available for ASP.NET MVC Crashes With Azure/Power Commands/Resharper

If you have been experiencing Visual Studio crashes when opening view pages in design view or having trouble installing ASP.NET MVC due to problems with third party add-ins such as Power Commands, please try out the just released CLR hotfix here:

  • For Vista/Windows Server 2008 32 bit: Use Windows6.0-KB963676-x86.msu
  • For Vista/Windows Server 2008 64 bit: Use Windows6.0-KB963676-x64.msu
  • For down level skus, run the .exe listed in the link that corresponds to your machine architecture
  • Win7: I’ll update this post if I hear of a patch for Win7

The source of the crash was a CLR loading issue that appeared when using third party addins or Azure Tools while working on ASP.NET MVC Projects in Visual Studio. If you are still experiencing crashes when working with ASP.Net MVC projects after installing the hotfix, feel free to contact me at joecar at microsoft dot com and we can take a look at why the hotfix is not working.
