Visual studio crash when trying to add pipeline components to toolbox

Posted: July 1, 2009  |  Categories: BizTalk Uncategorized

I ran into a very strange issue today. After installing the ESB Toolkit, I tried to ‘Choose Items…” in the pipeline components toolbox:


But every time I did that Visual Studio 2008 just closed without warning and the following exception appeared in the Application event log:

“ .NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3074 – Fatal Execution Engine Error (72615FC0) (80131506)”

I then tried to choose items from the Toolbox with the the pipeline file and the entire solution closed and it then worked.  After that I was able to open the pipeline file and it worked fine, allowing me to add all the pipeline components that I wanted:


Go figure…

  1. hi thiago

    did you ever find the cause to this problem?

    im having the same behaviour but i havent done the unknown lucky thing which magically fixed it for you. Did you ever find out what the cause was?

    Im about to try standing on one leg while facing south to see if that makes any difference 🙂


    1. Hi Mike,

      Never found the cause – but like I said to get it to work I opened visual studio without opening anything else (ie. left the solution closed) then selected Choose Items… from the toolbox menu, when I did that it let me choose the pipeline components without throwing the issue.
      I haven’t seen the issue for a while, I wonder if there’s anything in the recent hotfix that fixes it?

  2. Hi Thiago
