    Opening any .xaml files in the C# or VB demo's provided via the trial install causes Visual Studio 2008 to crash without warning.

    Opening the same xaml files from the same solution in Blend 3, however, causes no issues.

    I'd prefer to be able to browse the xaml in Visual Studio. Any insight into what may be causing this behaviour?

    The event viewer shows the following application event which coincides with the visual studio crash:

    .NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3082 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (7A2E1132) (0)

    Hello David Romanchuk,

    That is a strange behavior. We have never experienced such a crash. It looks like .Net 3.5 framework problem. I made small research at google and found that this behavior can be caused by some VS add-ons like Gallio. So if you have some add-ons you can try if one of them is not causing the crash. Another thing i found as a workaround in a forum is to make new solution and add the projects there. More info you can find in this thread- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/700511/vs2008-crashes-with-fatal-execution-engine-error.
    However the things I can't guarantee that the things I suggest will work as I can't reproduce the crash so I have not tried them myself.

    Hope that helps. If the problem persist please let me know.

    Best wishes,

    It looks like Gallio was the culprit here. I wasn't using it anymore, so I completely removed it from my system, after which I was able to open the .xaml files in visual studio without any issues.

    Thanks Boyan!
