Visual Studio 2015 SP2 Highly Unstable?

    Question

  • I am having all kinds of trouble, so I started <g class="gr_ gr_33 gr-alert gr_spell gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="33" id="33">devenv</g> in SafeMode.   I cannot add references to an ASP.NET web project.   Even in safe mode Visual Studio loads my 24 projects very slowly.  They loaded fine in 2012.   What gives?  2015 is unusable.

  • Hi Jack,

    Thanks for your post.

    >>I cannot add references to an ASP.NET web project

    How about creating a new ASP.NET web project? Does it have the same problem?

    1.If it works well for the new created web project. I think the problem is probably in your web project itself.

    Create a new web app then copy codes into it seems like the best solution for this.

    2.If still can't add the rederemce to the new empty ASP.NET web project. I suppose there might be something wrong with your VS2015 Update2.

    In this case, please reapair your VS2015 Upadte2.

    >>Even in safe mode Visual Studio loads my 24 projects very slowly.  They loaded fine in 2012.   What gives?  2015 is unusable. 

    Since your 24 projects were created in VS2012 and it might exist some compatibility issues when you open it in VS2015.

    According to your description. It is more related to the performance issue. Please restart your machien and disable anti-virus software and firewall. Also please close other third party program then try it again.

    Best Regards,
