Part 2: Vista SP1 Horror

For the love of all that is holy! Well, my fear of Vista SP1 appears to be justified. Visual Studio has crashed four times today in the past two hours. It usually happens during a build. I'm going to keep tabs here of what I do to figure out / fix the problem. My first clue is in the event viewer, I see this error for every VS crash:

Log Name: Application
Source: .NET Runtime
Date: 9/18/2008 3:01:12 PM
Event ID: 1023
Task Category: None
Level: Error
Keywords: Classic
User: N/A
Computer: mylappy
.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3053 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (71027706) (80131506)
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="">
<Provider Name=".NET Runtime" />
<EventID Qualifiers="0">1023</EventID>
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2008-09-18T20:01:12.000Z" />
<Security />
<Data>.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3053 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (71027706) (80131506)</Data>

Digging this up on the interwebs (Bryan calls it, "Google Kung-Fu") leads me to believe that the .NET 3.5 SP1 is horked. So ... reinstalling that ... If there are no more posts after this, then that did it.
