Visual c++ crashes unexpectedly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had Visual C++ 2008 Express for a while now and it used to work fine. All of a sudden, today it doesn't start a new project nor open an existing project anymore. When I try to do one of these things, the program just closes unexpectedly. as if I had pressed the close button. No errors, nothing. When I go to "File >  New > Project" everything is normal until I click on finish and then it jumps out and when I go to "File > Open > Project/Solution" the same happens when I click on open. I can open individual files though.  

    While messing around with it I found out the same thing happens if I try to go to 

    "Tools > Options > Environment > Fonts and Colors" 


    "Tools > Options > Windows Forms Designer"


    "Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > VC++ Project Settings"

    I don't see a lot of relation, but the 5 actions I described all create the same effect. I reinstalled the program to no avail. I fished around a bit and this: "http://bytes.com/topic/asp-net/answers/851071-visual-studio-closes-unexpectedly" seems like the closest problem to mine. I didn't find a lot else.
