My Visual Studio 2008 start to hang :-(
Posted on 2012-08-30
I use Visual Stido 2008 SP1 since 4 years with a C# WinForm project. Before 6 months I upgrade my computer to i5 and reinstall Windows 7, and the problems come. My VS 2008 SP1 project start to hang often, it show busy message near to clock and do not take any respond. One case when it happen relative often /1 times on 4-5 hours works/ is when I copy In the clipboard text like spLMyName and try to past it in SQL management Studio.
Other – the problem is happen more if I’m open 2 projects /in 2 VS IDE/
My ask is – what option I have when I get the message that VS is busy to check WHICH of its module is busy /hang/? I get feeling it is because of some Add-Ins for Visual Studio I installed, or may be because I installed VS 2010 /but not used at all/
Here some BIG changes I do:
1.	ON the same computer I install VS 2010.
2.	I change my project from NET framework 2.0 to 3.5 SP1 /almost sorry for that, there no ANY new for Windows Form in 3.5 SP1/
3.	I install various Add Ins .. I will try to remove the one I do not use.
Please help. When this happen I use Ctrl+Alt+Del ...
