Description dellis1972 2011-09-26 05:44:06 UTC
When using the Android Log Viewer from withing Visual Studio 2010, I get a FormatException raised by visual studio which causes the whole IDE to crash.

The only option was to (very quickly) turn off logging and close the Android Log Viewer and revert to using abd logcat to view the log records.

I dont have any further information on what might have caused the problem.
