Today I saw interesting behavior in VS2008: when you try to edit any View in the ASP.NET MVC project, main window of VS is not responding. Effect is like a some “invisible” modal dialog window is shown, and you can’t close it by Space or Enter. When you try to click in any part of VS’s window, you get an error beep.

I tried to unload all of add-ins, uninstall Resharper, reset VS settings – it’s useless. Solution is here (big thank you, guys :)): uninstall “Microsoft Visual Studio Web Authoring Component” through “Programs and Features”, and install it again from the “\WCU\WebDesignerCore\WebDesignerCore.EXE” folder inside the VS2008 installation media.

After that VS is working normally!

Thanks so much! I was experiencing this but with the code view of ASP.NET pages after installing Office 2010. Removing the Web Authoring Component fixed my problem in no time!
