Visual Studio 2013 SDK installation freezes visual studio – Project does not load, cannot close program

Recently I have installed the Visual Studio 2013 SDK and encountered a very annoying error for the first time. After opening a project (any project) at the Solution explorer none of the projects were loaded. And even a more annoying error occurred when I tried to close the solution, I could not do it and was prompted with an error:

VS error

No exports were found that match the constraint: ContractName


To solve this problem I found these tips:

  • Uninstall one of the extensions then restart Visual Studio. I know this sounds idiotic but a lot of people wrote this helps
  • Repair the latest update for Visual Studio which worked for me. (You can found Update 4 for Visual Studio 2013 here
