FIPS Again - VS 2015 - An unhandled exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' occurred in Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Workspaces.dll

Error Context

Recently I got my machine upgraded/re-imaged to Windows 8. Since it is re-imaging with Win 8 image, I need to install Visual Studio versions. Since I am working with VS 2013 and some research is happening around VS 2015, installed both. One main research is going on around Azure Service Fabric. So installed its SDK too. Then tried to open an existing project in VS 2015. As always the first experience was not so smooth. 

The issue is Visual Studio just restarts when I open a code file in the project.

After 3-4 restarts the below exception comes.

An unhandled exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' occurred in Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Workspaces.dll

Additional information: The type initializer for 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Diagnostics.Log.DiagnosticAnalyzerLogger' threw an exception.
System.TypeInitializationException was unhandled
Message: An unhandled exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' occurred in Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Workspaces.dll
Additional information: The type initializer for 'Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Diagnostics.Log.DiagnosticAnalyzerLogger' threw an exception.

Analysis

Step 1

The problem of being a developer caught me as usual. Attached VS 2015 process to VS 2013 for debugging. But it also gives same error.

Step 2

The TypeInitializationException says the type initializer failed. kind of clearly indication that there would be some static things which are getting executed for DiagnosticAnalyzerLogger. 

Since its coming from .Net Compiler Platform and that is open sourced, thought of looking at the source code of DiagnosticsAnalyzerLogger in git.

Yes. There are some smells of static variable initialization.

private static readonly SHA256CryptoServiceProvider s_sha256CryptoServiceProvider = new SHA256CryptoServiceProvider();

Yeah. Something related to security and Win 8 is known for its FIPS. But still don't know whether that is the reason and I should disable FIPS.

Step 3

Next thing obviously is to get the stack track and inner exceptions if any. Since debugging using VS 2013 is not giving more details, started to try with an internal debugger tool to attach into VS 2015 process.

It produced 500 KB of data (exception details) after I attached to VS and opened a project and C# file. Was able to reach to the exception quickly. But getting the inner exception was little difficult. After some time I was able to figure out that as well and it was clear.

Timestamp: 
Message: Type: System.InvalidOperationException
Method: System.Security.Cryptography.SHA256Managed..ctor
Message: "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms."
Date Time: 

Stack Trace:

Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Diagnostics.Log.DiagnosticAnalyzerLogger..cctor

As seen in the above log. Microsoft hard coded use of SHA256 Managed version and that is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated algorithm list. 

I am not sure whether everybody who install VS 2015 in Windows 8 facing the same issue.

Event Viewer logs

If I am not a developer, may be I would directly goes to the eventvwer and got the below exception immediately.

Solution

The solution is same. Just disable FIPS. Earlier it was used as workaround. But now we need to consider as solution.
