msbuild constantly hangs

    Question

  • Whenever I build and run, MSBUILD hangs.  When I stop execution and re-run, it cannot deploy because MSBUILD is holding onto the process.

    I have to constantly kill MSBUILD.

    If I switch to 64bit, it does the same thing (only the 64bit version hangs)

  • Is this for a store app or all projects?

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • I presume store, though I should note I am also using Bing maps.   I see there is a new update.  I will try that.

  • No one else is experiencing this?  Even if I clean/rebuild all it still hangs 3 times out of 4.   Does anyone know what other process I need to kill?

    start Taskkill /F /IM MayApp.exe
    start Taskkill /F /IM MSBUILD.exe

  • I swear I am going to lose my mind.

    Make small code adjustment.

    Build, Fail, Build, Fail.... 3 minutes later, build succeed

  • Sounds like you need to refresh your image.

  • Ok, I did that.

    Nothing :(  Did you mean VS or my machine?
