Steps to reproduce: Press ctrl-F or ctrl-H to open the search box. Select "Use Regular Expressions" (.*). Type the caret character (^).

Outcome: Visual Studio hangs and Task Manager shows devenv.exe to be happily chewing through memory.

Visual Assist X Version 10.7.1949.0 Built 2013.07.25
Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2012 Version 11.0.61030.00 Update 4
100% reproducible in VC++ for VS2012 and VS2013.


New information:

Disable Visual Assist through the menu options, carry out the regular expression search for ^ (successfully), re-enable Visual Assist through the menu options and it crashes with the same symptoms as described above.

I am seeing the same effect here. Thank you for the clear description.


We are hoping to have a fix for this in the next build.
