Getting a lot of hangs in VS2015 debugger

    Question

  • Getting regular Visual Studio is busy messages which take ~ 5 minutes to complete in VS2015. Specifically, debugging a 64 bit version of my app with Edit and Continue enable after choosing to ignore an exception, it stalls, arrives at the point in the code the exception took place, and then stalls again and continues to do so until I terminate the debugging session.  If I delete everything out of my project folder other than source, project and solution file, the problem is corrected but tends to reappear a few weeks later.

  • Hi Shane MacLaughlin,

    Please create a new project to check whether this issue is related to your specific project or all projects in Visual Studio.

    If just occurs in one specific project, this issue should be related to the project. Please try remove the project content one by one, which could help us confirm which file causes this issue. Note, please backup your project before do this operation.

    If all projects in Visual Studio 2015 has this issue, please try with following steps to troubleshooting this issue.

    1. Run Visual Studio as administrator to make sure it has enough permissions to do any operations.
    2. Run Visual Studio in safe mode which could help us confirm whether this issue caused by VS packages or not.
    3. Reset Visual Studio settings through Tools -> Import and Export settings -> Reset all settings.
    4. Check the ActiveLog.xml under the path of %AppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\14.0 when the busy message appear. Please check the latest information in ActiveLog, it could help us check what operations are doing when this issue appear.

    Best Regards,
