I keep getting this error in Visual Studio 2008 on Vista:

vstesthost has stopped working

I'm not sure what the issue is, but if you get this error, just stop the VSPerfMon.exe process and you can continue testing without rebooting your computer.

You probably have some sort of infinite recursion in your program causing a StackOverFlowException. Check for it!

I resolved changing advanced compiler settings on Target CPU to x32 instead of any CPU in VS2008. Im currently using Windows 7 x64.

This error basically related to the host process being stopped due to unhandled exception in the background thread. when vsts comes across with this kind of exception, it tries to restart/stop the host process.
In earlier versions of vsts (like 2008), it was allowing the execution of the test without stopping the main test thread; but in VSTS2010, it just stops or try to restart the host process. The only possible solution for this, is to revisit the code and try to resolve the exception in the background thread.
