VS 2013 stops responding after adding 10000 assets files to the project RRS feed

  • Question

  • First, I add a filter named Resources into the project under solution explorer, and then right click 'Resources' filter and choose 'add existing items'. After I add about 10000 files, Visual Studio 2013 stops responding with 100% CPU usage. The state usually lasts about 6 hours. Is this a bug of Visual Studio 2013? What's the appropriate way to manage a large number of assets files?

    Please read the sticky posts, especially the Guide to posting: subject line tags and Known Issues for Windows 10 SDK and Tools .

    Currently VS2013 is still supported, you can try the following two solution to see if it works;

    First, unload your project and right click it to directly edit XXX.csproj, here you can edit the config of  your project to check if there is some error. The following is the screenshot;

    Second, you can use msbuild.exe to package your app manaully without using Visual Studio.

    By the way, is your project wrote with C++? Different lauanguages may result in different behavior about this.
