[IronPython] ipy.exe crashes after attempting import in VS 2008 command window

This seems to work fine for me (same config apparently unless you're on 64-bit Vista - Vista, VS2008 RTM, .NET 3.5).  Do you get an exception outputted or do you just get the Watson UI saying an application has crashed?

One option might be to run under cordbg to see what the problem is, e.g.: cordbg .\ipy.exe -c "import os"

If you can let us know what exception it seems to be crashing on then it'll help us repro it or fix it :).

Subject: [IronPython] ipy.exe crashes after attempting import in VS 2008 command window


Can anyone else confirm this behavior?

I can run ipy.exe fine from a command line. However, if I start a
Visual Studio 2008 command window, (this is just %comspec% /k
""C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat""
x86), and then "import os" ipy.exe crashes. Furthermore, all future
invocations of ipy.exe crash until the machine is rebooted! This is
repeatable on my machine.

Environment: .net35, Vista, VS2008 ipy 2.0a6.
