Attached to Project: Codinion
Opened by Vasyl - 14.04.2018

FS#121 - My Visual Studio Enterprise 2015 crashes if codinion extension v1.0.1.30 is enabled

I got my VS crashing (Application event logger is reporting devenv.exe crash because of clr.dll stackoverflow) when I open any solution since 11th of Apr 2018. Before this date it was all Ok and I really like extension! After two days of investigation and even reinstall of VS and Windows 10 I found that problem is caused by Codinion extension. It was probably updated on 11th of Apr 2018. Current codinion version is v1.0.1.30

If I disable Codinion then VS opens solutions and I can work fine but if I enable it VS crashes just if I try to open any solution.

Please find attached codinion log files. No "ActivityLog.xml" for VS is available as this is fresh VS installation and I guess no logs are collected by VS. It all loks as pure codinion issue :(

I guess all problem caused by missing assembly. see next log lines

[2018.04.14 09:11:07] [Error] [Codinion.CodinionPackage.OnPackageStartup] System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'netstandard, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
File name: 'netstandard, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51'

But where I can ge it? Or how can I fix this issue...

Do you have .Net 4.6.2 installed?

Hmm, no... My bad. But I wonder why extension was automatically updated... I thought VS checks extension references or requirements. I will try to get.Net 4.6.2 on my machine... Still, You can consider some code changes to avoid such crashes. Anyway thanks for support. Will ask my manager if company can buy licence.

VS automatically updates extensions if there is a newer version in the Visual Studio Extension Gallery, this can be disabled manually unter Tools-> Extensions and Updates per extension.

Good idea i will think of some way to avoid such problems.

Yeah, I know about disable of autoupdate :) but typically it is good option :). Anyway it would be really nice if your extension will just notify user about missing prerequisites like .NET etc. Thanks you anyway! You forge great product.
