Visual Studio crashes after installing Xamarin

Hi,

I installed Xamarin without errors, but now Visual Studio crashes after startup. It happens with Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013. I tried reinstalling Visual Studio and Xamarin several times, but the problem remains. Visual Studio language is Italian.
I can launch Xamarin Studio without problems, but I need Visual Studio for other projects, so I have to uninstall Xamarin.
I searched forums, but I cannot find a solution.

Xamarin plugin logs says only this:

Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:35.5] No license found, using iOS Starter
Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:36.2] Running license sync for iOS
Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:37.8] Not logged in, using iOS Starter
Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:38.4] No license found, using Android Starter
Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:38.9] Running license sync for Android
Xamarin.VisualStudio.Shell.XamarinShellPackage Information: 0 : [2015-03-25 01:50:39.6] Not logged in, using Android Starter

I attached Xamarin Studio logs, but I think are not useful.

It's possibile to have more detailed logs to troubleshoot this problem?

  • I finally resolved this issue.
    Maybe Xamarin conflicts with some MS SQL Server DLLs.
    I have to delete these files from the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 Directory:

        perf-SQLAgent$SQLEXPRESS-sqlagtctr10.1.2531.0.dll
        perf-ReportServer-rsctr.dll
        perf-MSSQLSERVER-sqlctr10.50.1600.1.dll
        perf-MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER-sqlagtctr.dll
        perf-MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS-sqlctr10.3.5500.0.dll
    

    I have similar files in C:\Windows\System32 Directory, but Visual Studio loads correctly.
    Maybe the files in SysWOW64 Directory are older or damaged.
