Visual Studio 2019 Community won't start

Joel Hansen 1 Reputation point

I just installed Visual Studio 2019 Community and it won't start. It's crashing before even prompting to login.

Initial crashLogs1.txt attached.

I ran devenv /safemode and it crashed the same. I ran a .NET repair ( and it is now crashing the same but with new errors in the event log.

New crashLogs2.txt attached.

.Net 4.8, Win 10, relatively new install of Win10 on an SSD.

sfc /scannow didn't find anything wrong, and neither did a Malwarebytes scan.

Any ideas?

    Hi @Joel Hansen ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Can you tell me how you start the Visual Studio? You can try to launch VS in the VS installer.

    Besides, I recommend you clean your %temp% folder. Then, please check for your Windows Updates and ensure that all pending updates are installed, and kindly reboot your computer.
