  • Hi johny w,

    Please make sure your computer is not busy when running Visual Studio, such as Memory and CPU.

    Then please try create a new web project to check whether this problem occurs with this specific project or all projects.

    If just this specific project, please delete the .suo file in solution folder. You also can move this project's file to the new project one by one to check which file causes the problem.

    If for all projects, please try with following steps to troubleshooting this problem.

    1. Run Visual Studio as administrator.
    2. Run Visual Studio in safe mode with "Deven.exe /SafeMode" to prevents all third-party VSPackages from loading when Visual Studio starts, thus ensuring stable execution.
    3. Close all third part software, such as antivirus.
    4. Please check the ActiveLog.xml under the path of %AppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0. This file will log all operations when you operate Visual Studio.

    Best Regards,

  • Try devenv.exe

    The "v" went missing.

  • Hi johny w,

    Since you are using Visual Studio Express for Web, please try uninstall all NuGet packages manually one by one to check which one would cause this problem.

    If there are two many packages, you can try steps 3 and 4 first. After every possible steps we tried and the problem still exist, then we can try uninstall NuGet packages.

    Best Regards,
    Weiwei
