VB.NET Compiler Error

P: n/a
Hi All,

I am working on a .NET solution that contains both C# and VB.NET
projects. It worked fine but for the past few days, I get this VB.NET
Compiler Error that states:

Visual Basic .NET compiler is unable to recover from the following
error: System Error &Hc0000005& (Visual Basic inter compiler error)
Save your work and restart Visual Studio .NET.

It may pop during compilation, or EVEN when I just open the solution
file. On repeated restarts, it may or may not start functioning without
the error. Also there is no problem if I do a background compile (using
a batch file). But when I try to execute it using the IDE, I'm cursed
again.

I have uninstalled and re-installed VS.NET but to no avail. I am NOT
using DynamicCast keyword. Also I have noticed that sometimes the
startup project of my solution is set to some other project randomly
for some reason beyond my comprehension.

Please see if somebody can help. Million thanks in advance.

Which version of Visual Studio are you using? There are hotfixes or
service packs available that fixes many of these compiler crashes.

The first Service Pack for VS2003 has just entered beta and if you're
interested in evaluating it I think you can try to get access via
