Visual Studio 2013 taking very long to load RRS feed

  • Question

  • Opening a project in Visual Studio always takes a long time. In addition to that the loading time takes over 10 minutes. I've looked online for solutions but so far I have not seen a difference in the time. I thought it might be something with the graphics so I took out the hardware acceleration and rich graphics but that did not have a significant impact. Whenever I create a new project Visual Studio basically hangs and if I click something it says Visual Studio is busy waiting for an internal signal. Why would Visual Studio take a long time to setup and even open projects?

  • Hi ALUBoltz,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    >>"Visual Studio is busy waiting for an internal operation".

    It seems that it is the performance issue.

    (1) Please restart your machine.

    (2)Just open one VS Editor.

    (3) Before you create a new project, please make sure that your task manager is free. So you'd better close other third party processes or tools.

    (4) Of course, we also need to pay attention to the machine's configuration.



    Besides, you may try some devenv switches in command prompt:

    a.Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.

    b.Run devenv /ResetSkipPkgs in Command Prompt.

    c.Run devenv /Safemode to see if you can apply it correctly. This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems.

    1. Reboot the machine in Safe  Mode. This can isolate some third party application/driver's interference.
    2. Switch and try a new user account. This can rule out the possibility of corrupted user profile.

    Best Regards,
