VS Enterprise 2017 was crashing
Problem reported by Danny McNaught - June 28, 2017 at 5:40 PM
Here is the returned custom xml comment that I can reproduce my VS Enterprise 2017 with. Note the formatting was changed when it got put back in the code with WYSIWYG but with cursor in the comment and click WYSIWYG and then click add "Exception" it crash, but now after a complete restart of my system it is working without crashing VS. I believe this is a MS issue not yours since I am a Windows Insider running build 16226rs_prerelease.170616-2021.  I have seen that VS Enterprise 2016 will not completely install all component using the last two insider builds.

Danny, thank you for providing the comment sample! We were not able to reproduce but then, again, you mention you aren’t able either.

For the time being, I will mark this as 'Resolved' but please feel free to comment if you have more details about a way to reproduce the issue.
