If I try to view a cshtml file in Page Inspector, I get a NullReferenceException

This has never really worked for me in VS2012, and I am having the same issue in VS2013.  I really wish this will be fixed one day.

The exact exception is: (from ActivityLog.xml)

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.PageInspector.Package.TextViewCreationListener.OnTextBufferSelectionChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.Text.Utilities.GuardedOperations.RaiseEvent(Object sender, EventHandler eventHandlers)

Hi, thank you for your reply.

You do not need a project to reproduce this issue. All you need to do is set a browser, other than IE, as your default.
