Visual Studio or SSDT Error or Activity Log

The other day our SSDT was unable to open the project  and we fixed it. One of the key is to find the error by looking it to the activity log. But what about, if there is not error or activity log. This post explains so nicely how to go about finding the error or activity log:

Something went wrong in SSDT (Visual Studio), and we got the following dialog:

Visual studio has encountered an exception. this may be caused by an extension. You can…

If you don’t see the activity log file then we should run SSDT / Visual Studio’s executable (devenv.exe) with the /log parameter.

There are two easy ways to run Visual Studio with the /log parameter.  First, from the command line:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe” /log

Or by editing the shortcut you use to run it.

The error/activity log is at  C:\Users\Abc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0.  The log file is ActivityLog.xml.

SSDT Visual Studio Unable to open project or crashes when opening project

One of the developer was unable to open SSIS project today using SSDT 2012.

We try to do the basic operation by navigating to Tools =>

Options or Import and Export Settings.  It was unable to do so and generated the error or activity log. 

Now navigate to error/activity log  C:\Users\Abc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0.  The log file is ActivityLog.xml. When we did search on this error we received pointer towards Component Model Cache clearing.

We solved this problem by clearing Visual Studio Component Model Cache.

Just deleted this folder:

%AppData%\..\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\ComponentModelCache

or

%AppData%\..\Local\Microsoft\VPDExpress\11.0\ComponentModelCache

The version of Visual Studio you have is specified by the number e.g.

Visual Studio 2012 is 11.0 (as shown above)

Visual Studio 2013 is 12.0

Visual Studio 2015 is 14.0

Restart Visual Studio.

For those that don’t know, most of the time %AppData%\..\Local\ is the same as C:\Users\{yourUsername}\AppData\Local
