ScriptedSandbox64.exe has stopped working - Visual Studio 2015

This is the second time I've seen the error "Scripted Sandbox64.exe has stopped working" in Visual Studio 2015.

In my particular case, I was building a Windows Forms application and you place the application into the system tray in Windows. This application also writes files using System.IO. The project has nothing more than that. Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition crashes.

Solution for now is to install Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition and retrofit the project by changing the *.csproj file XML.


For anybody who has this problem: I experienced the same problem debugging a WPF application today in VS2015 Community Update 2. I am sure that I did not have this before but I dont know how it crept back in. As mentioned before, disabling the Diagnostic Tools solves the problem. Unfortunately, this is not an option for me. Luckily, installing the "Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 (KB3151378)" solved the problem for good.

I had a very similar issue, same dialog as OP posted, but then I encountered the same when running the application in debug mode. That helped me find what was causing this error in my application.

I traced it down to an iteration through DataGridViewRows, which would contain about 1800+ rows. My iteration was to set a checkbox value to true, but I ended up not needing to do that anyways. Once I removed this, the application would run okay.
