Never seen that particular error as far as I know. Are you getting it consistently?
I've found that if you hit the run/debug button multiple times when it's starting up, it can corrupt the preview runtime.
I've also noticed that clicking on the preview/debug button doesn't always start the preview; sometimes you need to click, hold for maybe half a second, then let up. Odd, I know, but I've seen it a dozen times if I've seen it once.
