I'm running visual studio 2010 on windows 7 RC, and it crashed almost anytime I hit F5 to start the application.

also when using the XAML WPF editor, if I don't hold and wait for it more than 30 seconds to switch from the design to the XAML code it crashes also!

by the way I Visual Studio 2008 worked perfectly on the same laptop with Win7 beta!

Does anyone ecountred this issue and how can it be fixed?

Well VS2010 is still in beta and you are using an OS version that's not quite finished. I suggest you report it on some kind of VS2010 beta forum. – Nifle Jul 30 '09 at 10:35
While I've not done any substantial projects yet, I've only seen it crash due to a known issue with the WF designer being locked to the default install directory (addition of a hard link fixes that). – Richard Jul 30 '09 at 12:51

I had a quick look and I couldn't see the bug logged at

You should log the bug with Microsoft. This is a link to a search query with all the Visual Studio bugs that have been logged on connect with the terms crash and 2010

You will probably need to log in with a live id to see the results.
