VS stops working error messageAre you trying to open up a WP7 project/solution in Visual Studio and it just dies on you?  I think I might be able to help you out!

Are you working on WP7?  Have you ever seen VS 2010 just STOP working on you, after you open up a WP7 project/solution you got from a friend or some someone?  I have, and for the life of me I couldn't figure it out!  Well, that was until Dean gave me a clue!  Thanks Dean! 

Turns out, VS isn't so good at reporting the LACK of the WP7 VB.Net component!  Instead of telling me I don't have VB.NET for WP7 installed, it just GPFs on me!  DOH!

Well, Dean came to the rescue and told me try this link out.  After installation, POOF!  I could see the app!  Beautiful!
