.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3074 – Fatal Execution Engine Error opening file in VS

I was getting a problem with the VS IDE when  I opened an aspx page.  VS would crash and it crashed every time.

The windows log gave the following error for VS :
.NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3074 – Fatal Execution Engine Error

I’d read previously that removing Gallio would sort the problem.  This seemed to work for some people but didn’t work for me.

 
A bit more digging and I found a hotfix from Microsoft which seems  to have solved my problem.  Hotfix  description is :
Uploading both MSI and CBS
CBS Package Request for DevDiv Servicing# 592189
Exchange: Fatal execution Error in W3WP with .NET 3.5 SP1 – crash in the loader – DomainFile::FinishLoad

The hotfix is available here
