Description Blake Davidson 2013-05-21 21:15:33 UTC
When I try and open an iOS project in VS2012 Premium the project appears to continually reload until VS eventually crashes. It appears to load Android projects without any issues. I receive Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 has stopped working as well as the following problem signature

We need the %APPDATA%\microsoft\Visual Studio\11.0\ActivityLog.xml and the Errors displayed in the Event Viewer with category .NET Runtime just before the one that is generated by VS (as you pasted here)

Comment 2 dean.ellis 2013-06-04 11:06:52 UTC
Is there any further information on this issue?
Comment 3 Blake Davidson 2013-06-04 23:54:54 UTC
The ActivityLog.xml does not exist. I apologize for my ignorance, but I am unfamiliar with the Event Viewer. How do I go about opening it? This error occurs when trying to open up the project.
Comment 4 Jose Miguel Torres 2013-06-05 17:28:28 UTC
Hello Blake, go to Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Log Viewer (look at Application log) and let us know.

Comment 6 Blake Davidson 2013-06-06 13:22:09 UTC
I am still unable to locate ActivityLog.xml. I didn't find one for VS2010 either.
Comment 7 Jose Miguel Torres 2013-06-06 17:55:06 UTC
That's my suggestion:

Uninstall both Xamarin.iOS and Android. Then make sure the extensions are completely removed in %PROGRAMFILES (x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\COMMON7\IDE\Extensions\Xamarin

Try install both products agains, and let's know.

This bug has been in the NEEDINFO state with no changes for the last 90 days. Can we put this back into the NEW or CONFIRMED state, or are we still awaiting response?

If there is no change in the status of this bug over the next two weeks, this bug will be marked as NORESPONSE.
Comment 9 Danish Akhtar 2015-07-14 01:15:18 UTC
As per comment 8 marking this as NORESPONSE.
Comment 10 Danish Akhtar 2015-07-14 01:23:03 UTC
I have checked this issue with latest stable builds and I am successfully able to load iOS projects with VS 2012. As there is no response of this bug for more then 1 year. 

Hence marking this as NORESPONSE.
