NShader locks devenv.exe

Jun 12, 2010 at 6:02 PM

NShader crashes as soon as I open a .fx file.  I see the tab open as though the file was there, but then devenv.exe locks-up eternally, using 0% CPU time.

Windows XP SP3
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
Visual Studio 2008 Professional (I didn't try this though)
Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate
DirectX SDK June 2010
Blend SDK 1.0.1340.0
Shader Effects BuildTask (http://wpf.codeplex.com/releases/view/14962)

The .fx files I was opening came from WPFSLBlendModeFx.codeplex.com.

Has anyone else experienced this?  How does one go about diagnosing a problem with an extension?

Weird, I tried to load all WPFSLBlendModeFx shaders from VS2008 Pro and  VS2010 Pro, and It's working fine here.

Though, I don't have Shader Effects BuildTask installed... could you try without the ShaderEffects build task installed?
