I have updated VS 2015, I have applied all updates to AS 7, running x64 on Windows 8.1 - constantly, constantly crashing. Sometimes every 5 minutes, almost guaranteed to crash when closing a debug session. Totally unpredictable, I feel like I'm hitting save more than I'm doing actual work for fear of losing my work.
I know this is supposed to be avr related only, but the board I'm working with right now is SAM-V71 XULT. However, it crashes with my XMEGA, D21, and other boards as well. In studio documentation it states that EDBG will crash occasionally with V71, so I disabled the CMSIS-DAP on the board and am trying to debug using my J-link Plus. Still crashes so saying EDBG is the reason it's crashing is malarkey. I disconnect the tool, restart (the computer, the software, etc...) and even with no tool connected it crashes at will. The automatic restart doesn't allow me to capture any failure information. Someone suggested running as admin, that didn't help.
Every time I start I get the warning shown in the attached image. Any suggestions on how to get around this or people who have experienced similar issues?
*Edit : I also added the activity log - there are some errors throughout it but this is definitely out of my league.
