Fix for Visual Studio 2008 crash with XAML files

Does your Visual Studio 2008 SP1 crash when you open some XAML files? It started to happen to me, for some unknown reason.

What I saw was Visual Studio completely disappearing after opening a XAML file, with the devenv.exe process being unloaded. The only traces of this kind of crash were error events in the Windows Event Viewer: ".NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3053 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (7A035E00) (80131506)".

Luckily, a fix for this issue has been published by Microsoft. It looks like everything is back in order now.

Finally, back to productivity thanks to this hotfix and the tip I published some time ago!
