Hi guys.

First off, thanks for a great product! It's really been indispensable for us.

We have a problem in that we have multiple solutions each consisting of around 200 projects. When VS starts up, VAX will lock up the IDE with a "VAX is scanning projects" dialog for quite a while.

If we disable VAX then VS is responsive during the entire load of the solution and we can start working immediately. If you notice, the MS Intellisense updates occur in a background thread without affecting the user. It would be really awesome if the VAX scanning and cache updates could be delegated to a background thread so as not to lock up the IDE at load.

Would you mind capturing a log of the solution load so we can investigate?

Start VS.
File | Close solution (if a solution automatically loaded when VS started)
VAssistX | Visual Assist X Options | Performance | Enable logging (close dialog)
Load the solution
Wait until the process CPU goes idle
Exit VS
