I have Visual Studio 2010 on my computer, and It's been fine for as long as I know.
I purchased a XNA book, and downloaded the source code. When I open it, it opens Visual Studio Express for Windows Phone.

I figured it was no biggie, and just RightClick> Open with VS2010

One day, that stopped working.

If any XNA program opens to Express by default, when I debug it in VS2010, it will build and launch properly, but VS will not respond, and crash after I'm done debugging.

If I start a project from scratch in VS2010 or Express, it's fine, and they debug and launch fine in VSExpress, but it all kinda dies when it hits VS2010.

I can use VS2010 from scratch, and on any other type of program. But XNA Solutions originally made in Express die, and that can be a nuisance, given that most tutorial source code is made in Express.

Outside of dealing with it, does anyone know any possible solutions to my problem?
