As you are using Express this issue can solved by resetting your settings file, but you will end up losing all your customisations. If your want to train your settings, copy current settings. vssettings that is under“%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Settings” to your desired location. To do that-

  1. Go to start menu and then go to run
  2. Type vbexpress/restuserdata

This will fix the issue.

Fixes For Visual Studio Express 2013 Application Cannot Start


If you have a problem with Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 or Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013, check the system requirements again and verify that your computer meets those requirements. Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 supports Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 8.x, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 (64-bit), and Windows Server 2012 R2 (64-bit).

For Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Update KB2883200 is required to be installed. It requires 1.6 GHz or faster processor, 1 GB RAM, 5 GB free space, and Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible video card at 1024 x 768 minimum screen resolution. If this is not a problem or there is no compatibility problem, try running the program as admin.

Right-click Visual Studio and select “Run as administrator.” If this doesn’t work, try to uninstall and reinstall. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install. Once installed, start Revo then select Visual Studio among the applications and click “Uninstall.” Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and click to delete everything it finds.

This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, exit Revo then install Visual Studio back. Try also downloading Visual Studio 2013 again or the latest version. Go to Microsoft Visual Studio Older And Newer Versions. If you are installing a language pack, download Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows Desktop Language Pack.
