Visual Studio Multiple Monitor crash solved

August 31, 2009

After re-arranging Visual Studio windows and moving my Output window to my 2nd monitor, my web project started crashing after it was built, giving an error BEX in msenv.dll, and an error for msenv.exe was logged in the Application Event Log. After some searching I came across a post referencing a hotfix for similar issues under KB960075, posted here. After downloading and installing, the issue was resolved. A new msenv.dll is placed onto the system that fixes the issue.

  1. I was so hopeful. This issue has plagued me for months… but to no avail. Installing it appears to have done nothing. VS still crashes for me when moved to my second monitor and maximized. I sure hope Microsoft fixes this soon.
