Restarting IDE due to AS application has stopped working.


Using AtmelStudio 6.2, Visual Micro 1404.1 on Win7Pro with 16GByte memory.
Due board using both Serial(Programming) and SerialUSB(Native).

Can't say if this problem is due to Visual Micro or AS6.2, but often when I click on Start Debugging, a popup appears that want's to restart AS6.2.
It happens sometimes during compilation and sometimes during upload, after the message: Uploading to board using port COMxx.
If the reset button is pressed on the Due board, it also happens quite often, it feels like it is connected to the COM port handling. The message: Port no longer available has been shown in the "Other Com port window".
This has been more frequent after using both ports in VM.
It also takes lot's of mips up to 26% and gets sluggish after restart.

This might be related:
I have been getting the message: Build directory not found, or similar.
If i click on the Start Debugging again, it works.
Thanks for an awesome tool, I bought a commercial license yesterday, because I really want's this tool.

I'd like to work through some tests with you in our visualmicro.com forum.

One test will be to switch off the two friendly port names settings in Tools>Options>Communications>

Can I find this issue there as well?
