Visual Studio crashes when opening designer for C ++ \ CLI Form using .NET Framework 2.0

I have a Windows Form written in C ++ \ CLI. When I try to open the form in Visual Studio (saying "View Designer") I noticed that Visual Studio is crashing.

Following are the Windows Application Logs -

.NET Runtime Version 2.0.50727.4963 - Machine Crash Error (768FB727) (800703e9)


  • My project is built to use .NET Framework 2.0
  • OS - Windows Server 2008 x64
  • I have tried reinstalling VS2005 and .NET Framework 2.0 without any success.

@linkerro - You were right, the problem was actually in some third party custom controls that my form was loading at design time.

I used Assembly Loging Log Viewer (fuslogvw.exe) to see what the linking failures were.
