Visual Studio 2008 not loading


Today I experienced a rather weird error. Upon launching VS 2008 (Beta2) it refused to launch. After checking out my processes I could see that devenv was running, but nothing was happening. After checking all the possible settings that stop an exe from starting up, I finally came up with the solution.

When launching VS2008 it talks to a process called PresentationFontCache.exe. When I stopped that process, VS2008 continued to launch, and PresentationFontCache got launched as well.

On a sidenote, I went to the BPIO training concerning Collaboration, Unified Communcation, … and it was good stuff. A bit too SharePoint minded, but at least we know have a clear vision of Ms’s vision on IO.
