There have been a few reports of Visual Studio 2012 crashing when user right-clicks a variable in source file and selects "Go to definition". On most stations CodeXL and VS2012 play well together, however the crash was observed on some stations.

This may be a Visual Studio issue triggered by the Visual Studio 2012 CodeXL extension. The problem persists even after CodeXL is uninstalled.

Perform the following steps to overcome this problem:

  1. Uninstall AMD CodeXL.
  2. Uninstall MS Visual Studio 2012.
  3. Install MS Visual Studio 2012 + Update 3.
  4. Install AMD CodeXL.
