2016-04-23 Saturday - Visual Studio 2015 on Windows 10 - Screen Flicker

2016-04-30 Update:
After trying a number of things, I discovered that I just needed to uncheck the box for G-SYNC


My primary development machine is an MSI GT72 6QE Dominator Pro G (GTX-980M), 6th Generation notebook with the new Skylake processor.

When launching any of the Visual Studio 2015 tools, the screen flickers constantly.

If you are experiencing the same thing, it may be due to a a bug with the new Intel HD graphics drivers for the new Skylake processors.

You may be able to resolve the issue by disabling Hyper-V with this command:
> dism.exe /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V
