Linqpad crashing when debugging

edited November 2018
Since updating to v5.36.03 linqpad has crashed and closed every time I try to run any query without showing any error messages.

The only information I've found is the following in the log file...

5.36.03 2018-11-19T11:34:57.8770891+00:00 SymbolManager -
COMException: Exception from HRESULT: 0x806D0005

First chance data:

I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, have also installed the any cpu version which crashes in the same way.

Any ideas? I'm struggling to do any work without Linqpad haha


  • Just noticed that it works fine if I run a query without debugging...
  • Have you tried it on another machine?
  • Yea is just happening on my machine, thought i had fixed it by deleting all of the linqpad files in appdata and re-installing but that just turned off debugging by default, as soon as tried to debug again it just closes.
  • ...Also just tried version 4 and it does exactly the same thing!
