Visual Studio 2022 Enterprise Crashes When Loading

Robert DeSautel 0 Reputation points

I have been looking all over the internet trying to find a solution to this. I have installed Visual Studio 2022 Enterprise and receive the following error, image below. I will have several error windows popup saying essentially the same error occurring then I receive another exception message in the image below. I have Visual Studio 2019 Pro installed and I do not receive this issues. I have Visual Studio 2022 Community installed on a separate machine and it works fine. I have uninstalled all versions of Visual Studio, even used the uninstall tool to remove other remnants of Visual Studio. I then reinstalled Visual Studio 2022 on its own and I still have the same error. I reinstalled Visual Studio 2019 and that IDE version still works.

Attached is the Activity Log these errors are dumping into. Does anyone have a solution or experienced this same problem?

    Hi @Robert DeSautel ,

    Please try following suggestions:

    1. Right-click and run VS as administrator.
    2. Run CMD as administrator > type and run "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" command. Wait for this command operation to be completed, and check the result. If everything’s good, please continue to run "sfc /scannow" command(See this document: Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files for details).
    3. Try to update Windows OS.
    4. Go to the C:\Users\ <username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio folder, open "17.0_XXXXXXXX" folders and rename every "ComponentModelCache" folder, then restart VS.

    Please feel free to let me know if any of above methods works.

    Best Regards,
