VS11 hangs for several minutes when trying to view a xaml file

    Question

  • Almost everytime I chose to view a xaml file (even one that is already loaded in one of the VS tabs), VS freezes or hangs for several minutes. Windows 8 Task Manager displays CPU consumption by VS but buttons won't respond and the window cannot be resized.

    I tried known-issue-xaml-designer-in-visual-studio-11-beta-crashes-on-launch-2012-03-07 but it hasn't solved my issue.

    Any ideas?

  • Andreas, with very simple project will you still get the xaml file crash? And any errors in the event viewer?
