You know, since it seems so far that only you and I are having this problem, perhaps the program simply does not like people with the first name "Bruce".
One thing that I noticed was that when I exit the program, my hard drive light flickers for quite a while and the vstudio.exe process remains running until the drive activity stops. Then, as vstudio is shutting down, I get the application error.
I've been trying various suggestions as well.
The latest thing I have tried is to set the Play back
method to "High quality playback" under File\Preferences
I get a message stateing that "high quality playback is disabled with current project settings" when I preview my work, but so far, no more crashes and VS seems to be closing properly.
Admitidly, I have not done much more work in the project since making the setting last night, so will let you know how it goes
