This error only occurs when a header I made is include into my project. When the error happens, it is recursive no matter how many times I press the button to "close program" or "debug". It does not prevent me from continueing my project but error highlighting does not function and intellisense does not work either - this is almost unlivable. The error does not re appear if the include statement is commented out or erased all together. My program still compiles without error and runs just as its supposed to.

FIWI I have also seen this message

"Visual C++ package server has stopped working"

several times over a few weeks using VS , but I can't see when or why it happens.

There is no response to "See if Microsoft know about this and have a solution"

It doesn't seem to have any ill effects, at least after a restart of VS.

i recently decided a class to encapsulate xinput is rather silly, since its so simple! aha. anyways that error is annoying none the less, i hope you find out what the cause is.
