I have installed the latest available general release build 2393 of VA (Release date: 2020.10.28, Version 10.9.2393) over Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 Version 16.7.7. VA keep crashing VS at random times soon after I load a C++ solution. At the time of the crash VA displays dialog that tells me to grab a crash dump and contact Wholetomato. Then VS terminates (after you click thr OK button in that dialog)
The only VA callstack I could grab at the time of crash is this:
VA_X.dll file version 10.9.2393.0 built 2020.10.28 DevEnv.exe version 16.7.30621.155 Enterprise msenv.dll version 16.0.30611.6 Comctl32.dll version 6.10.19041.488 Windows 10 10.0 2009 Build 19042.572 16 processors (x86-64, WOW64) Language info: 1252, 0x409
Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 Version 16.7.7 VisualStudio.16.Release/16.7.7+30621.155 Microsoft .NET Framework Version 4.8.04084
Hi! I have a similar problem when the studio is not running as administrator. After the studio has started and the rebuild of the database begun the studio closes without any message. If the DB was successfully built as admin I'm able to start the studio without admin right until I do some changes on my code. With a down date to 2382 the problem is gone. If someone knows a workaround please let me know.
While we look into any mini dumps you can capture, which anti-virus are you using?
Have you tried excluding the VA's symbol database directories from being scanned? I am just wondering if somehow anti-virus could be interfering, somehow. VA should be installed under:
%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\16.0_xxxxx\Extensions where the "16.0_xxxx" directory has a hash as the last part of the directory name, and VA will be installed into a hashed sub-directory under Extensions. Looking for the "va_x.dll" will help you to locate the correct directory. The symbol database is then stored in the "Data" sub-directory.
