Visual Studio 2005 Crashing in Windows 7 randomly

faulting module craxddrt.dll_unloaded

The problem was that when opening my solution, by default it opened the last crystal report that i was working on. This seemed to start some crystal report ActiveX thing that didn’t work on Windows 7. It would always crash, even if i closed the report straight away.

To stop this problem was to load up VS, close the report immediately and safely close VS before it got a chance to crash! The next time it opens, there is no crystal report and the ActiveX control never loads.

So the next time you save the solution and close visual studio be sure to close all Crystal Reports window

Also I installed Service Pack for VS 2005, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=90e2942d-3ad1-4873-a2ee-4acc0aace5b6&displaylang=en
