In Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, when using the 'Find and Replace' dialog, it it sometimes frozen:
- dialog cannot be closed and stays on top
- no interaction possible with the dialog

However, it is still possible to interact with Visual Studio in the background. I was then able to save my solution, close Visual Studio and restart it.

1. Start Visual Studio.
2. Start another instance of VS.
3. In the second instance click Tools | Attach to Process...
4. In the list of processes locate devenv.exe.
5. Click Select... and explicitly choose 'Native' and 'Managed' code.
6. Click OK and OK to close Select dialog and Attach to Process dialog.
7. Go back to the first instance of VS and repro the crash\hang.
8. Upon the crash\hang, control should go to the second instance of VS.
9. In the second instance click Debug | Save Mini Dump (without heap).

If you are running the VB profile you will not see the Save Dump As menu item. To add this menu item:
a. Select Tools -> Customize
b. Select the Commands tab
c. Select Debug from the “Menu bar” dropdown
d. Click “Add Command…”
e. Select Debug from the Categories list.
f. Find the “Save Dump As” entry in the Commands window.
g. Click OK (the “Save Dump As…” command is added to the top of the Debug menu).
h. Click “Close”

I have installed "Visual Studio 2010 Diagnostic Tool" from the gallery. Now I don't know how to go further... when the problem happens I do not have any dump file generated. Please explain how we can proceed

Thanks for reporting the issue.
In order to fix the issue, we must first reproduce the issue in our labs. We are unable to reproduce the issue with the steps you provided.
It may help if you provide us with a dump file and call stack.

You can get detailed steps about how to get the dump file and call stack at http://blogs.msdn.com/debugger/archive/2009/12/30/what-is-a-dump-and-how-do-i-create-one.aspx

Or you can download a Visual Studio 2010 Diagnostic Tool from http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/e8649e35-26b1-4e73-b427-c2886a0705f4. You can get detailed description about how to use it to collect dump file.

Please zip the file and use "FeedbackID-571854" as prefix of the file name.
