"Microsoft (R) Visual Basic Compiler has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
Visual Studio crashes with this error as soon as I load my solution.
I have allowed memory dumps to be submitted a couple of times yesterday via Windows Error Reporting.
The code that appears to trigger this issue uses the latest release of Rhino Mocks mocking framework, and in particular a feature that allows dealing with "void" methods.
I have repro'd this on Vista and also on XP SP2 inside Virtual PC.
Visual Studio 2005 (All Products and Editions) Service Pack 1 w/ Windows Vista Update
Operating System Language
Steps to Reproduce
1. Open VS2005
2. Open solution
3. VB Compiler crashes

I kept getting this error under the same conditions. hatSamIam's workaround resolved the error for me. I'd recommend that everyone give it a try!

My system and symptoms are the same as Blackninja2007. My workaround was to delete the solution's suo file.

I am having this same issue. I have been completely unable to get into my solution for 3 days now. The bosses are not too happy about this, since release date is less than 90 days away....

I am also suffering with this issue, using VS2008 and Windows 7 x64. It appears to happen everytime I leave a form with a user control open when i close VB down. Next time i open vb i get the compiler error. Running all latest service packs both in VS and windows.
Any help would be appreciaited as this does not appear "Fixed" as indicated above.

I am in the same boat as Jason. I am running Windows 7.

I am also having this problem, but I noticed that the comment "fixed it for the next service pack." was mentioned, but I have not seen any service pack 2 for visual studio 2005. Is there a hot fix for this available?

Delete all files in your /bin directories (this gets regenerated when you compile) I also deleted the <solution>.suo file that contains the individual developer settings for the project, don't know if this was a necessary step. Then restarted VS2008, loaded the solution, right-clicked on the solution and selected "clean solution" followed by "build solution".
