VIsual Studio - Takes forever to load project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded and installed VS Express 2013 and am about to give up and switch to a competing product. Here is my issue. WHen I open a project from a remote server it can take 10-15 minutes for it to fully open. I have to sit and wait for it do something that I can not figure out how to stop...

  • Hi,

    Sorry to hear you are experiencing such issues in VS2013.

    I assume that you just installed VS2013 Express on a remote server, open a project to VS from the remote server then got this issue. Whether you opened VS product itself normally and did not spend 10-15 mins?

    A project which is very big or complex can cause VS to load it for 10-15mins? Please create a new and simple project from VS, close VS, then open that new project from VS to check the result.

    I suggest you to go to the Task Manager to see whether some processes are consuming much CPC or Memory when you loading project from VS. Sometimes some third-party software may affected VS.

    If some other processes used much CPU, you can close them.

    You also can inspect with Process Monitor: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-in/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx like this thread with similar issues: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18360453/why-does-it-take-sooo-long-to-load-my-solution-in-visual-studio
