VS2010 keeps crashing when build WCF RIA service project for Silverlight 4 application solution

My Visual Studio 2010 IDE keeps crushing (without exception throw and no windows events logged) whenever try to build the WCF Ria services project for my Silverlight 4 applications. Since there has no exception thrown when IDE crashed, I cannot create the dump file and send you as well. This issue is currently seriously blocking our project development, so very urgent to look for solution. 

 

So any solution for this issue?

Hi Jin,

Frankly speaking, for VS IDE crash issue, there would be many causes for it to happen.

Some clarification with you:
What's your OS?

Based on your description, it seems that VS2010 IDE crashed when you built WCF RIA service  project.

I would suggest you to try some common workarounds mentioned below to handle crash issue:

  1. Try running devenv.exe /Safemode in Command Prompt to see if you can apply it correctly.
  2. Reboot the machine into Safe Mode. This can isolate some third party application/driver's interference.
  3. Switch to try a new user account. This can rule out the possibility of corrupted user profile.

As we know, usually, we need to look into the memory dump to know what the cause is. It is a good way for us to track the root cause of crash concern. We might debug the crash.
You can try to use some tool like Procdump to get the dump file of the crash. Then you can open a new case in our Connect portal: http://connect.microsoft.com. Our engineers will help you analyze the dump file.
Or you can use Windbg Tool to analyze dump file.
