Visual Studio hangs on running project

751 Views
Last Modified: 2017-04-03
I am running Visual Studio 2015 on an Azure VM running Server 2012 R2. I have been designing an MVC project for a while with no problems. Recently VS has started to hang intermittently after I Ctrl+F5 to run the project. Sometimes VS stops running the project all together.
There are no breakpoints or build errors, and the problem arises before VS gets to any of my code.

I guess the problems are VS related but I have no idea how I would begin to locate the problem! Any suggestions?

If there's no indication of whose comment actually pertained to the solution and we're closing the question then I'd recommend splitting points evenly.

Unfortunately I had to restore the VM to a backup pre-problem. I have since copied (post-problem) code and the problem has gone. Not the solution that I was looking for and it has cost me significant time, but it has worked.

Your input was much appreciated.

Thanks
