loading 'choose toolbox items' dialog is taking forever RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using VS2008 version 9.0.21022.8 and every time that i try to open the "choose items" to the toolbox it takes a lot of time (couple of minutes). in the status bar it says: loading 'choose toolbox items' dialog.

    Can anyone help?

     

    Thanks,

    Avi

  • I get the same issue in VS 2005  try running devenv /resetskippkgs in the VS command prompt or devenv /setup  it didn't work for me but others have said it worked for them. Sorry to say I think I am at the point of unistallig Visual Studio and re-installing, God, I hate to do that it takes forever to install.

  • Can't remember where I found it but I cured this by NOT using a wireless mouse! Unplug it and toolbox loads

    Seriously this goes in my top 5 weirdest thing in Visual Studio. How can a wireless mouse cause that problem.

    Wireless mouse detach did the trick. Thanks.

  • I disconnected my USB mouse on my local system and the dialog box came right up.  What is going on?
