Visual Studio crashes with "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" message

Jun 10, 2012 at 7:58 PM

Just installed StyleCop 4.7.30.0. Since this install, about 50% of the times after I press Ctrl-Shift-Y to trigger StyleCop, VS shows a dialog box with the message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" and an [OK] button. After pressing OK, VS closes immediately, without saving any files and IDE changes.

I'm unable to find any stacktrace of this in the event log. What is the place to find more about this crash, so I can report this?
