Why does Visual Studio 2003 run slow on my PC? here are my hardware specs.
Posted on 2008-06-20
I have a Visual Studio 2003 Professioanl installed on my computer and I have WebForms in my project and it take almost 2 min to open the Design View of my WebForm up. I look on Windows Task Manager and my CPU is at almost 50% with DEVENV.EXE (which is VS 2003), memory usuage is like 150,000K
aspnet_wp.exe is at 100,00+K memory usuage, not as much CPU though. Once the Webform Loads the CPU, drops to 0-2% for DEVENV.exe. Other than MS Office, and a few other business related applications, this is all i have running.
I turned off my anti-virus, and i have decreased my services that startup ( i have a total 30 services starting up)
Current Hardware Specs:
Windows XP Professional, with SP2 installed
Intel Pentium 4 3.6ghz
1 GB RAM
Stock everything else.
I have read numerous articles and some people say turn off intellisense, but that didnt work...i am kind of puzzeled why it would be like this.
If my hardware is not adequate, then what do "Experts" recommend?
I would like to use VS 2003 and or 2008 for business stuff.
Thank you in advance.
