Choose Items in Visual Studio Toolbox close / crash Visual Studio

It happened a few times before and it happend again. This first time when it happen to Visual Studio 2008 sp1. When I tried to choose items in Visual Studio toolbox, Visual Studio crashes. I tried usual cure:

devenv.exe /resetsettings

In this case you need to back up all your settings and then restore them. Usually it helps, but not this time. Ofcourse I tried right click on toolbox and do:

Reset Toolbox

As usual it didn't help. Finally I found solution. You need to run Visual Studio in safe mode.

devenv /safemode

Then try to do Choose Items in safe mode. Click on each tab. Press ok on any errors and you are done.

If you intalls PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2008, you should unintalls it and try again

As far as I know there is no other solution, except to reinstall Visual Studio. Did you open your command line "As Administrator"? If not try it. So, when you execute devenv /safemode it would be in "as administrator" mode too.

Please use the below command line utilities to reset the visual studio settings.

devenv /setup
devenv /resetuserdata
devenv /resetsettings CSharp
