SQL Prompt 5 add-in crashes BIDS

After installing Prompt 5, Business Intelligence Developer Studio crashes to the desktop when I preview a report.

I unchecked Prompt 5 in Tools > Add-Ons and BIDS no longer crashes when previewing reports.

    Thanks for the workaround! As someone mentioned in another thread, if you uncheck SQL Prompt 5 in BIDS, it does still work in SSMS.

    I've recently upgraded SQL prompt to version 5.1 (build
    Beforehand I'd disabled SQL Prompt in BIDS and everything worked fine.
    Since the upgrade, every time I load BIDS the checkbox is ticked (even if I unticked it then restarted BIDS properly) and previews still crash BIDS regardless.

    Worked out the problem. I didn't have admin rights so when I tried to update Visual Studio to remove the add-in, the settings weren't saved.
    Ran VS as admin and made the changes, now it all works fine.
