Crash with Visual Studio 2010

I have installed Panda3d 1.8.0.
I am trying to create a sample application with Visual Studio 2010. The program compiles fine, but crashes. I have read few posts regarding this. I think a lot of people are getting this kind of problem.
Any visual studio 2010 available or any way to mend the build i am doing?
Actually I use Boost and most of the C++11 features available with 2010 so I would like to stick with it.
But I do not have SDK or Directx installed. So I cannot build it. I think it will be great if a 2010 version of Panda3d also released as they release for Ogre3d.

You cannot use VS 2010 at this moment, sorry, as discussed in many related forum threads before.
