Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 crashes on Controller Scaffolding entity-framework-6 visual-studio-2015


I'm trying to use EF6.1.3 and Visual Studio 2015 to make some simple CRUD pages, but I keep getting errors whenever I go to "Add Controller"

I tried everything from reinstalling Entity Framework to reinstalling Visual Studio completely. I've created a new empty web app and tried to add a controller and I get the same crash.

I originally had VS2015 before update 1 and had the same problem. I thought Update 1 would fix it but no luck.

There is no error message. VS just shuts down and restarts. There is something in the event log but it doesn't seem to be too helpful:
