Visual Studio 2010 restarts...

I have added a InstallShield 2011 project to an existing solution the Visual Studio 2010.
There is no problems as long as I only work within the InstallShield project. A few seconds after I access a source file in one of the other projects, Visual Studio wants to restart.
To see if the problem is caused by something in my solution I made a solution with one win32 project and and one InstallShield project. Exactly same problem: Visual Studio restarts when I access the source file in the win32 project.

SP1 for Visual Studio 2010 is installed, but still same problem.

Any suggestions?

Try updating InstallShield 2011 with Hotfix A via the automatic update.

😞 The InstallShield (IS 2011 Pro) is already updated with Hotfix A, but it did not solve the problem.
I found this reference:
"Flexera Software has produced a hotfix for this issue. The hotfix is posted on here: http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?t=193330."
at http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/564199/vs-2010-unstable-after-installation-of-installshield-le-extension
but the reference is not valid.
The description of this problem dated one year ago seems to match my problem.
Which hotfix does it refer to?

My workaround for now is to remove the InstallShiel project from the Visual Studio solution and run InstallShield standalone.
