Google saves the day


So, I finally got the release version of Visual Studio 2008 installed on my home box. And what do I get whenever I pretty much try to do anything within the IDE, including close it? This error:


"Visual Studio has encountered an unexpected error." I tried a repair install, but that didn't affect anything. I was getting ready to give up and go to bed, when I decided that even though it was a completely useless error maybe, just maybe, if I search for it in the context of Visual Studio 2008 I might get some kind of useable result. Well, as luck would have it I got this as my first result:


Seems innocuous enough, but in the post he said that he found it to be VisualSVN (don't let it fool you, VisualSVN rocks hard) that was causing the error. I just happened to have this installed, and now, it works perfectly. Thank you google and this post.

Loved the article? Hated it? Didn’t even read it?

We’d love to hear from you.
