Debug issue with context menu

I'm having this weird issue with context menus.


You can put this snippet in the ConnectToSW method


         swCommandManager = (CommandManager)SOLIDWORKSApplication.GetCommandManager(Cookie);

var CommandGroup = swCommandManager.AddContextMenu(15, "MyAddin") as CommandGroup;

            var commandID = CommandGroup.AddCommandItem2("Edit", 0, "Edit", "Edit", -1, "Edit", "", 0, (int)swCommandItemType_e.swToolbarItem);

            CommandGroup.SelectType = (int)swSelectType_e.swSelCOMPONENTS;

            CommandGroup.ShowInDocumentType = (int)swDocTemplateTypes_e.swDocTemplateTypeASSEMBLY;

            CommandGroup.HasToolbar = false;

            CommandGroup.HasMenu = false;



The debugger seems to hit the Activate() line and then abruptly exit the debug mode. SOLIDWORKS 2017 seems also to crash.

Has anyone seen this behavior before. Thanks!
