VS 2017 (15.3.5) crash when opening certain solutions

    VS 2017 (15.3.5) crash when opening certain solutions

    I found that opening some (but not all) projects causes a VS 15.3.5 crash when GhostDoc 5.7.17240 is enabled. Disabling the GhostDoc add-in allows VS to open without crashing.

    In specific, two open source projects where it's been seen:

    • https://github.com/IdentityModel/IdentityModel2/
    • https://github.com/domaindrivendev/Swashbuckle.AspNetCore/
    Another user actually filed an issue on that Swashbuckle project: https://github.com/domaindrivendev/Swashbuckle.AspNetCore/issues/491
    After I found the issue via trial-and-error (and "/safemode") on VS I mentioned it to the person on that issue and disabling GhostDoc solved the problem for them, too.
    From the ActivityLog.xml generated during a failed startup the only warning/error I see involves "Visual Studio Common Project System" crashing. That warning happens after I see GhostDoc reporting an "unexpected system error mode"

        <description>Extension &apos;Visual Studio Common Project System; was involved in a crash. Stack follows:</description>
     The logs didn't seem to provide much detail or help. The way I discovered this was to disable all of my extensions and re-enable them one at a time. Eventually I re-enabled GhostDoc and the crash hit. Disabled GhostDoc, re-enabled all of my other extensions, everything works. Re-enable GhostDoc - crash again.
