Description Ian 2015-12-20 22:23:53 UTC
Created attachment 14356 [details]
VS2015 log

I've  attached the VS2015 Activity log.

When i try to open my XF 1.4 solution, Visual Studio will crash with a Null error. The attached log shows the Error at the end attempting to load a Xamarin tool.

If I delete every bin/obj folder from all projects, I can load it, but VS2015 will blow up if I fail to delete all these folders next time.

The Projects work fine in Xamarin Studio.

So the issue appears to be around the time VS2015 is processing the solution at the "OnAfterOpenProject" stage.

Replicated on several PCs.

There seems to be an issue with the attachment, I can't download it at all :(.

When VS hangs, can you generate a minidump and attach it too?

It would be helpful to get the Help | About Visual Studio version information, since it might also be an unexpected interaction with another extension too.

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the inconvenience.

As we've added several improvements since the bug was reported, and we couldn't reproduce it I'm resolving it tentatively as "NotReproducible".
That said, if you're still facing this issue with current bits, please feel free to reopen the bug.
