Visual Studio 2012 may crash with StarDist-3


Stardict-3, cross-platform and international dictionary software, may cause Visual Studio 2012 to crash. However, information and data of this behavior is limited.

More Information

If you suspect that Stardict-3 is the cause, open Task Manager and verify that Stardict-3 is listed in the Background Process. If so, stop the Stardict-3.exe process and launch Visual Studio 2012. If this step resolves the issue you are advised to remove StarDict-3 from the Programs and features applet in the Control Panel.

Alternatively you may want to use StarDict-3.0.4 as the issue has not been seen with this version. The download location at the time this article was published was:
