Error during VS 2012 with update 1 install, just re-install update 1

I’ve just installed Visual Studio 2012 with update 1 (the ISO is available for in MSDN subscribers downloads) on a test TFS 2012 server.

Visual Studio with update 1 install

The install went well, I clicked “LAUNCH” and chose the C# development settings (first launch only dialog), but then an error occurred :

devenv.exe crashed because of an error coming from Microsoft.VisualStudio.Progression.LanguageService.CSharp

After re-launch, Every time I would right-click in my Solution Explorer, Visual Studio would continue crashing :

Application: devenv.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.MissingFieldException
Stack: etc.
   at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Progression.LanguageService.CSharp.CSLanSvcProvider.InitializeProvider

I was not the only one, as you may find here, and here, but re-installing only the update 1 did the trick, if it does not for you, you may have to fully re-install Visual Studio.

Every year I’m challenged on my contributions to the Visual Studio ALM community, and my efforts with this blogging site have been rewardful (but not only). Year 2012 was a year of transition for me, moving from Paris to Bordeaux, with personal events to manage (I know I’m no exception), but I feel more comfortable to dedicate more time to my expertise this year.Happy new year


The time for Champagne wine, foie gras (unavoidable when we celebrate new year in France) and good resolutions is over, let’s hit the road, I’ve plenty of ideas and areas of work for year 2013!

And by the way, happy new year to you fellow reader! Smile
