Visual Studio hangs when clicking "Design" mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-261468222 posted

    Visual Studio 2013
    Windows 8.1 Pro, 32-bit

    Clicking "Design" makes the program hang. Never loads.
    Works properly on other projects.

    Tried reopening the program.
    Tried rebooting.
    Tried repairing the installation.
    Tried creating a new page (thought a fresh page couldn't possibly have anything wrong with it.)

    Welcome to asp.net forum.

    According to your description above, here are a few suggestions that might help:

    •Cleaning and rebuilding your current Project (Right-click > Clean, Right-click Rebuild respective) and see if that makes any difference at all. 

    •Stop your existing application and ensure that you don't have any additional IIS processes or instances of your local Web Server running.

    •If these issues are still persisting after the above steps, try restarting Visual Studio (and even your local machine)

    •If you are dealing with multiple Projects, ensure that the Project that you have a breakpoint in is actually running (Right-click your Solution > Set Startup Projects... > Ensure your current Project is selected)

    Hope it helps.
