Installing killed VS2012

description

After installing TypeScript 0.9.0.1 on Visual Studio 2012 11.0.60315.01 Update 2, when starting VS it showed as a window with black background and no controls. No errors either.

When starting VS in safe mode, it threw this:
Application: devenv.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.NullReferenceException
Stack:

Using the "repair" option of the VS installer didn't fix the issue. I had to uninstall and then install VS from scratch.

Honestly, this looks more like an issue with VS rather than TypeScript, but I thought I'd report it just in case.

Could you re-open with some additional info? What OS? VS SKU? Is there anything in the Visual Studio activity log? Were you upgrading from a previous Typescript install?
